Tropical Kabobs for the Grill

Tuesday, 28 July 2020 16:17

TASTE News Service, July 28, 2020 – Everybody at Taste publications enjoys consuming tasty food. After all, that’s presumed.  

Most of us also enjoy prepping and cooking it, especially when grilling is involved.  From time to time we’ll publish a recipe created by one of our contributors. At other times, we’ll find inspiration from promotional boards and food producers.  When we run a recipe from one of these entities, we try to reproduce it exactly as written. If that includes a brand name, so be it, but the recipe is an editorial feature, not paid advertising.  Such is the case with today’s Tropical Kabobs which we obtained from Diestel Turkey. Preparation takes half-an-hour to 45 minutes, but your kabobs should only need 5 to 7 minutes on the grill.

Wine suggestion: Want to get out of that Chardonnay rut? We suggest you try a Riesling. Two good options are Eroica from Ch Ste Michelle (about $20) or the Barnard Griffin Riesling (about $10).  The sweetness and acid balance in these wines should nicely complement the pineapple in these kabobs.
