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 kiwi, peeled, sliced into 4 slices, and quartered
- 1 banana, peeled, sliced into 1-inch thick slices and cut in half
- 1 red apple, cored and cut into bite sized chunks
- 1 small can mandarin oranges, drained
- ½ cup orange juice
- 1 tablespoon dried mint leaves or 3 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped
- Mix mint leaves into orange juice.
- 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.
- Place kiwi quartered slices and mandarin orange pieces in minted orange juice; toss well; remove.
- Using wooden skewers, make 16 fruit kabobs by alternating the kiwi, banana, apple and mandarin orange
- If you make these ahead, place them in a long shallow container and pour the minted orange juice over the
top; cover and refrigerate.
- Remove from juice and arrange on a platter for serving.
