Reviews for Fruit and Cheese Kabobs
"Easy to make. Tried canned pineapple, using the juice to dip banana and apple slices to preserve. The yogurt/sour cream dip is delicious."
"Love this recipe! Use long cocktail toothpicks with frilly tops and skewer 5-6 pieces on each. Kids and adults love them as a healthy change amongst other appetizers."
"The turned out very good and light. I also added watermelon chunks on my wood skewers. Everyone loved them."
"The dip is really good with bananas too. Don't be afraid of the fact that it is lower fat."
