Fruit And Cheese Kabobs


I’m totally going to post a Blissdom recap…once I finally get over the awful Blissdom crud that has overtaken my body and Ridley’s too. 🙁 Until then here’s a super fast and easy {and healthy} appetizer for you to drool over.

I made these fruit and cheese kabobs for Ridley’s birthday party a couple of weeks ago and they were a wonderful hit!

Fruit And Cheese Kabobs

  • Fruit – I used strawberries, pineapple and red and green grapes
  • Cheese cubes – I used colby and cheddar
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • Bamboo Skewers

Wash and cut up the fruit and then alternate fruit and cheese on each skewer. I initially thought I would leave the head of lettuce whole so the skewers would be secure, but my sweet mother-in-law was extra helpful and washed the lettuce and tore it in pieces. At first I thought it was going to be a total flop, but truly it worked out okay.

I’ve seen kabobs displayed in whole heads of iceberg lettuce on a platter, but since I already planned to use a trifle bowl, a potential fail was averted. 🙂

Isn’t it pretty?

I love that it looks a little like Spring….which I wish was closer than it is!

Do you make any kind of kabobs? I’d love to hear about your favorites so I can use up the leftover skewers that I have on hand! 🙂

  1. I’ve done something similar, but I used a pineapple as my base to hold the skewers. I used shorter skewers, though. I like the lettuce idea!!

  2. I make fruit kabobs, but instead of cheese I add large marshmellows to hold each end on, and sometimes add cantaloupe, cherries, and kiwi.

  3. These look wonderful. I love fresh fruits and I can’t wait til summer when the fruits are in season. Thanks for sharing these delicious looking Kabobs!
    Tomorrow I’m featuring a bunch of recipes. I’d love for you to stop in if you have a chance. Have a great day!

  4. These look great! I am going to make some for a women’s lunch I am planning in a few weeks. They remind me of the mini kabobs I made for my daughter’s bridal shower!

  5. How much fruit and cheese did these take? Did you use the really long bamboo skewers? Sorry, if someone already asked these questions.
