Grilled Turkey Kabobs Recipe

Grilled Turkey Kabobs Recipe

I tried these kabobs at a friend's barbecue and asked for the recipe. Marinating them overnight really gives the flavor a chance to soak in. They make a tangy light meal served with fruited rice pilaf. -Marilyn Rodriguez of Fairbanks, Alaska
