Summer Foods to Eat on a Skewer

Summertime is such a fun season to join with friends and eat outside! Eating food off a stick isn’t only fun, but practical for a group setting outside. I am always looking for easy sides to serve with a BBQ, and trying to drum something up to bring to a gathering. Here are some ideas that serve both purposes, and taste good too!


- Caprese On a Stick: Stack fresh mozzarella balls, cherry tomatoes, and basil leaves. Drizzle with balsamic for some extra flavor!

- Watermelon/Feta Skewers: Layer squares of feta cheese and watermelon for a sweet and salty snack! Add mint for an extra layer of flavor!


- Sandwich on a Stick: Stack little rolls of turkey, cheese, tomato and squares of bread for a fun and filling snack. Pretty basic ingredients, but reinvented in stick form!

- Sweet Potato Kebabs: Peel and cube sweet potatoes, then microwave until soft to the touch. Once soft, skewer them, and sprinkle kosher salt and coconut flakes!

-Greek Chicken Skewer: Alternate marinated chicken with colorful bell peppers and red onion. Season with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic and oregano!


-Chocolate bananas on a Stick: Cut bananas in half and insert a wooden stick before freezing for 15 minutes. Microwave the dipping chocolate in a glass dish, dip each banana and finally, top with anything yummy! Crushed candy bars, cereal pieces, rainbow sprinkles, nuts or coconut flakes!
