Fruit Kabobs at Pool Party

With the temperature rising close to 100 degrees here, just staying on land during the day is not easy. So this weekend, a few friends got together and had a pool party. The menu was a fabulous  potluck  -  strawberry-orange slush, potato burgers, bean burgers, chicken kabobs, grilled asparagus, grilled pineapple, roasted corn and beer :). These were an after thought but would fit right in - fruit kabobs. It is simple to make and no cooking required. Portion below is for 4 skewers. I would measure 2 per person.

Ingredients:

4 strawberries
8 grapes
1 slice pineapple (canned or fresh)
8 1 inch pieces watermelon
1/2 banana chopped in 1 inch pieces

Cut the pineapple slice into 4 quarters. Take a skewer and insert a piece of water melon followed by banana, grape, watermelon, pineapple, grape and finally a strawberry. Make the rest of the skewers the same way. Chill in refrigerator till ready to serve. Enjoy!
