Summer is here and that means it’s time to Fire up the Grill! We pretty much grill all year long but Summer time does offer the freshest in season fruits and vegetables suitable for grilling up that tasty appetizer or entrée. I tend to go lighter on dishes during the Summer; but I burn more calories so I want something filling without sacrificing the full flavor. Kabobs are a simple solution whether grilling for two or for a crowd! You can certainly substitute the vegetable and meat choice to your liking. I created this full flavored marinade with chicken and pork in mind. Try our Habanero Orange Finishing Salt. You get a little heat from the Habanero, balanced with some fresh mint and orange….The perfect finish to these Kabobs!
