Asked to bring fruit to a brunch or potluck? Why not bring fresh FRUIT KABOBS! Colorful fruit cubes on skewers are portable, delicious, and EASY!
It’s officially Spring in the Pacific Northwest… the temperatures are warming up a bit, we have enjoyed glorious days of sunshine and warmth, followed by days of clouds and rain. No complaints here, but I am really getting excited for backyard BBQ’s and family gatherings (birthdays, holidays, etc.) which are just around the corner!
If you’re the “lucky” person who is asked to bring fruit to a celebration, brunch, picnic or potluck meal, maybe you’d be interested in this simple idea… FRUIT KABOBS! Perfectly portable, delicious, and EASY! Your guests can grab a skewer of beautiful fresh fruit… healthy AND easy peasy!
Fruit Kabobs Are Always A Big Hit At Brunches!
I’ve made these many times over the years, for as little as 4 people, up to almost 50 people. Fruit Kabobs look cute, and are very easy for guests to add to their plate. You can adapt the kabobs to whatever fruit you enjoy.
For these fruit kabobs, I used fresh blueberries, cantaloupe, kiwi, pineapple, and strawberries, all layered onto wooden skewers. Wooden skewers are available in most grocery stores and are inexpensive.
Making Fruit Kabobs Ahead Of Time
Sliced bananas can also be used on kabobs, but you will need to cut and skewer them right before you serve, so they don’t turn brown. Using the fruit shown (w/out bananas), I was able to make the skewers up several hours before we served them at an Easter brunch.
If making ahead, cover the fruit kabobs platter with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until it’s time to eat!
There’s no need for a fruit kabobs “recipe”, and no need for any dipping sauces. Make them colorful, ripe, and bite-sized, and you’ll have a popular side dish! The natural sweetness of the fruit is a perfect low calorie dish for any gathering!
Hope you will try this simple, easy way to serve fruit “salad” in a different format! Your family or friends will love fruit kabobs! Have a great day!
