Watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew are all good picks for these fruit kebabs. If available, add some fresh pineapple or kiwi chunks to the mix.

Makes: 12 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 15 mins

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • Juice of 3 to 4 oranges (1 cup)
  • Juice of 2 limes (3 tablespoons, or more to taste)
  • 3 pounds assorted melon, cut into 1-inch cubes
  1. In a small saucepan, bring 1/2 cup water and the sugar to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove the syrup from the heat and let cool. Add the cooled syrup to the orange juice; stir in 3 tablespoons of lime juice (or more to taste).
  2. Thread about 6 melon cubes onto each of twelve 10-inch skewers, alternating colors. Pack the skewers in a flat, sealable container and pour the marinade over them. Keep cool until serving.
