“This is one elegant, easy recipe people really seem to like at every party. I found a marinade recipe that wasn’t so heavy on olive oil and modified it to my taste. The kabobs are a snap to assemble. You don’t even need to turn on the oven.” —Kendra Doss, Kansas City, Missouri

"Super easy and DELICIOUS!!!! I made these as an appetizer on Christmas. I had about 20 kabobs for 8 adults and they freaked out when the plate was empty. Ever since, I have been requested to bring these everywhere! :)"
