What's on your plate? K is for Kabobs

My favorite things about kabobs are: 1)you can customize them to your liking; 2)they are so easy to do; 3)for this time of year they are perfect to take to a super bowl party (in my opinion).

So lets get crackin'!

You will need:
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing, divided

  • 2 pounds jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined ->please

  • 2 large onions

  • 16 large fresh mushrooms ->I skip the fungus. Replace with artichoke  

  •    hearts. Now we're talking! 
  • 2 large green peppers, cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces

  • 16 cherry tomatoes

  • What you'll do: 
    1) In a large resealable plastic bag, combine 1/2 cup salad dressing and shrimp. Cut each onion into eight wedges. In another large resealable plastic bag, combine the vegetables and remaining dressing. Seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally.

    2) Drain and discard marinade. On eight metal or soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the shrimp and vegetables. Grill kabobs, covered, over medium heat for 3 minutes on each side or until shrimp turn pink.

    Mmm ... So delicious! Have fun and enjoy!
