Barbecues are a great way to bring friends and family together. Standing around outside with a drink in one hand and a grilled kabob in the other is my kind of summer! Add in some laughter, good conversation, and a swimming pool, and I don't want to be anywhere else!
Meat tastes the best in the summertime. It's fun to experiment with kabob combinations of meats, vegetables, and sometimes even fruits! Cover with seasonings and marinades, wrap in foil, and let it simmer.
Okay, my mouth is watering, let's get to the recipes!
Whoever thought of putting BBQ and pineapple together was a genius! And who doesn't like bacon? This combo is sure to be a winner at your next barbecue. Small bite-sized pieces are great to keep the conversation going between quick and easy bites!
This is a nice light and healthy option. Even someone who isn't a huge fan of veggies will typically eat them from the grill! There's just something that makes grilled vegetables more appealing. If you want to give guests a bonus, let them put together their own combinations of veggies and meats.
An even healthier option is salmon kabobs. I'm typically not a fish fan, but for some reason, grilled salmon is one of my favorite meals! Salmon can be a bit pricey, though, so you may want to save this meal for a smaller and more intimate barbecue gathering. If you want to splurge, just provide a couple of extra side dish options for guests who may not be fans of seafood.
We can't forget to include a recipe for beef on the grill, and look how colorful! The grillmaster behind this recipe described it as the perfect combination of sweet, tangy, and zesty. And, from what the recipe said, it looked as if most of the prep for these kabobs can be done the night before making the day of the barbecue a breeze!
