What could be a more simple summertime meal than grilled kabobs?

Summertime is the perfect time to get out of the kitchen and grill out. That way you don’t heat up your house. And there are some great options for real food eaters when it comes to whole foods on the grill. Make sure to go into your garden or to your local farmer’s market and pick up some great, fresh produce that you can use. Summer produce is plentiful and there are lots of great, fresh vegetable combinations you can use. You really are only limited by your own imagination!

This grilled meal is super versatile and super easy and will make for a quick summer dinner! You can use your choice of meats. My favorite is steak….but I enjoy chicken too! You could also use shrimp or pork. Both of those would work as well! You can also use your choice of sauces with this or keep it au naturale.

Don’t want meat? You can easily make these with just vegetables. I’ve done that as a side dish too!

This simple grilled kabobs recipe is both naturally gluten-free and grain-free! If you’re grilling out and want a simple dessert idea, try these easy grilled peaches!
