K-bobs & Salsa

I promised recipes for some of the things we had on Memorial Day... Promise made~promise kept.

It really was a simple menu~ I was more interested in spending time with friends than spending time in the kitchen. That is my definition of a party! All of this I was able to do ahead of time. Bill manned the grill while I manned the sangria.

Chicken K-bobs
4 boneless chicken breasts
6 small potatoes
2 yellow squash
1 bell pepper
fresh mushrooms
Sage leaves
Slice the chicken breasts into large chunks, and place in a zip-loc bag to marinate. Boil the potatoes for 5-10 minutes until tender. Slice squash and pepper in large chunks. Skewer all of these ingredients onto a skewer. Using the sage leaves around the potatoes. Grill over a low flame 20-25 minutes turning until the chicken is done. (this serves 4- double or triple as needed) Serve with fruit salsa.

Fruit Salsa
1 cup diced honeydew
1 cup diced cantaloupe
1 apple diced
8-10 leaves fresh mint, chopped
8-10 leaves fresh basil, chopped
3-5 slices jalapeno, diced
1 tsp vinaigrette dressing
Combine all ingredients. Cover and set aside until ready to serve.
I hope you were able to celebrate with friends and family as well. Memorial Day is the beginning of summer~ Y'all enjoy!
