Wow - this is a real winner! Delicious! A very pretty dish too, great for company or bringing to a party. The fruit kebabs were more popular than the dip, I may forgo that next time.
I am in agreement with the previous reviewer the butter really puts this over the top. This is sublime and simple.
We loved these kebabs! They were such a NICE change from the usual "fruit salad"!!! The kids ate the fruit right off the stick--which for some reason made the fruit seem more exotic??? ;-) I popped the kebabs in the oven (we don't have a grill) at 450 for about 10 minutes, and they were wonderful--that marinade is great! I would have NEVER thought of brushing with butter, but that really gave a neat flavor to the whole arrangement. I used brandy-flavoring (didn't have the liqueur), and orange flavoring (to enhance the orange juice), and two mangoes for the peaches (out of season in our north-woods state!). Skipped the mint, too, but no one missed it. These were great and I'll definitely make them again--a KEEPER!!!
Oh what an honor to be 1st!! This is a wonderful recipe! It will serve 6-8 not 4, tho. When I saw the fruit piling up, I set aside most of the pineapple & peach already cut, used 1 apple, 2 bananas, proably used 1 peach cut into 8 big chunks - i didn't peel them. I still used the same amount of marinade. I added a bit of cinnamom to the marinating fruit & also to the melted butter. Everybody loved this!!! I nice alternative to veggies & nice alongside grilled meat. Might be nice for Sunday brunch? Thanks, Andria!!!
