Fun and different, these kabobs are a treat exclusively from the grill! The pineapple gives ordinary summer vegetables a fresh, tropical taste. They're colorful and always a hit with family or at a get-together. #151;Sharon Bickett, Chester, South Carolina

"These are wonderful. Serve them with grilled steaks or porkchops, along with rice, or add chicken, shrimp or beef right to the kabob."
