Planning your Labor Day cookout menu will be no work at all when you have Trisha Ward's classic kabob recipe to call on. "Feel free to use cauliflower or other favorite vegetables," she suggests from Atlanta, Georgia.
These are delicious with fresh sweet corn and a baked potato. You can spend the day out of the kitchen by assembling the kabobs in the morning, then letting them marinate all day before grilling at dinnertime. —Lorri Cleveland, Kingsville, Ohio
These meaty skewers not only satisfy my love of outdoor cooking, they feature a mouthwatering marinade, too. It's terrific with chicken and pork, but I prefer it with beef because it tenderizes remarkably well. —Christi Ross, Guthrie, Texas
I'm always on the lookout for light meals that will satisfy my family, and these stuffed kabobs fit the bill. Served with a creamy mustard sauce, the colorful bundles are special enough for company.

"It takes just seconds to stir up this delicious marinade, which flavors the beef and veggies wonderfully," confirms Candy Vander Waal of Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. "Marinate the meat a few hours or overnight-whatever suits your schedule."
A lemon-olive oil marinade gives these tasty kabobs a nice tang. They’re great for summer parties. In bad weather and during the winter, we cook them in a 400-degree oven for 25 to 40 minutes. —Weda Mosellie, Phillipsburg, New Jersey
A mild soy sauce marinade lends an appealing flavor to these tender beef and veggie kabobs. With colorful chunks of yellow squash and sweet red and green peppers, they're perfect party fare. —Kathy Spang, Manheim, Pennsylvania
