Hawaiian Kabobs

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.—Sharon Bickett, Chester, South Carolina

    We are hooked on this recipe! My brother turned the leftovers into fajitas the next day and said it was the best he'd ever had.

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