These easy summer fruit kabobs are light and refreshing and make a fun snack for adults and kids alike. Perfect for an indoor or outdoor get together with friends and family.
Happy Memorial Day weekend! Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer season. Since schools are closed this day, and it is a day many people are off of work, it is typically spent gathering with friends and family and having an outdoor get together. Here in Arizona, it has started to warm up quickly. We are seeing temperatures well into the 80’s now, and starting to push the 90’s. Time spent outdoors right now is fabulous, especially if you have a pool.
In my family, it is common to grill and eat summer type foods. These fruit kabobs are a great addition to any get together, whether it be indoor or outdoor because they will hold up great either way. They are also great for kids and grown-ups alike.
