Grilled Pork and Pineapple Kabobs

One of our favorite things about summer is all of the fresh, sweet, juicy fruit at the farmer’s markets, supermarkets and pick-your-own or roadside farms. While peaches, pineapples and cherries are usually a cool weather indulgence because they are shipped from halfway around the world, in the summer, fresh fruit is abundant and so flavorful.  I fill our fridge and fruit bowl with our favorites and we snack on them all day long.

Last week I wrote about pairing fruits with greens like in this Chicken and Nectarine Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing. I also love to add fresh fruit to our summer meals, often to complement meat with a savory marinade, as in these Grilled Pork and Pineapple Kabobs.  These flavors are a delectable combination, and the pattern of the pork, red peppers and pineapple on the skewer looks so appetizing that it’s ideal to serve to company.

Making kabobs is also a great cooking project to undertake with your kids. They’ll be so proud of their patterns, and you’ll be sneaking a few math skills into the summer fun.

If you like the sweet and savory combination of fruit and meat or cheese, you might also enjoy Honey Glazed Chicken with Mango Salsa or  Fruity Breakfast Pizzas.
