This is basically fruit salad - on a stick! It's a great, healthy side for kids or elderly people who have trouble handling plates. It does take a bit of time to assemble, but the results look stunning at a baby shower, birthday party, or cookout! The goal is to make the skewer colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue. You can, however, substitute any fruit you'd like. You can also reverse the order in which you put the fruit on the skewer, and dip the bottom of the strawberry in chocolate. Have fun!
- 50 strawberries, hulled
- 50 pieces cantaloupe or 50 pieces mandarin oranges
- 50 pieces pineapple, canned
- 50 pieces kiwi fruits or 50 pieces honeydew melon
- 100 blueberries
- 50 bamboo or other disposable skewers (such as plastic)
- If using wooden or bamboo skewers, make sure all the splinters are off of them by rolling two together in your hands, or rub them over each other, as if you are sharpening a knife.
- Cut the fruit that is not already small into 1-inch, or bite-size, chunks.
- First, skewer the strawberry.
- Then, skewer the cantelope or orange.
- Then, skewer the pineapple.
- Then, skewer the kiwifruit or honewdew melon.
- Then, finish the skewer with 2 blueberries on the pointed end. Make sure to push them up fairly high, so they don't slip off.
Thanks Greeny for posting. Made as written but cut recipe down to 10 skewers. This is a fun one. Simple but spectacular. Made for 1-2-3 hits game June 2010. Enjoy! ChefDLH
How do I describe my fruit kabob experience? Ztaprullas, tubiddi...oh, don't mind me, I'm just trying to think of a new word to describe it because I can't seem to find one that already exists...blabblarfuses, shamabluious. Tagged in Everyday Is A Holiday.
I'm not sure why but food eaten off a stick always tastes better! Thank you for the great idea, the fruit kabobs are delicious.
