Recipe: Minted Fruit Kabobs


Many of us are familiar with the dish called kabobs that consist of small cubes of meat or fish threaded on a skewer and grilled. These minted fruit kabobs are a fresh, sweet version that make for a light and pretty dessert or a fun snack.



  1. Mix mint leaves into orange juice.
  2. As soon as you cut the banana and apple, place in minted orange juice so they do not brown. Toss well in
    orange juice and then remove.
  3. Place kiwi quartered slices and mandarin orange pieces in minted orange juice; toss well; remove.
  4. Using wooden skewers, make 16 fruit kabobs by alternating the kiwi, banana, apple and mandarin orange
  5. If you make these ahead, place them in a long shallow container and pour the minted orange juice over the
    top; cover and refrigerate.
  6. Remove from juice and arrange on a platter for serving.
