Pear Kabobs with Strawberry Dipping Sauce
A fruity interpretation of the traditional kabob, this treat is as fun to make as it is to eat! Makes a pear-fect after-school snack!

2 Green or Red Anjou USA Pears, cored and cut into 1-inch cubes
2 bananas, cut into 1-inch slices
1 can pineapple chunks, drained
2 cups strawberries, stems removed
6 wooden skewers

In a small bowl, combine the vanilla yogurt and strawberry preserves. Set aside.

Thread the fruits by alternating the pears, bananas, pineapple, and strawberries onto the skewers.

Serve the fruit skewers with a dollop of the strawberry sauce on the side.

About Lynsey

I work with USA Pear marketing offices that work in 38 countries all over the world: from Latin America to the Middle East, from Europe to Southeast Asia and places in between, our representatives serve markets on every continent except Antarctica. I love the opportunity to practice my Spanish and pick up new phrases in other languages (even if it’s just the basics of “hello,” “goodbye,” “thank you” and of course “pear”: pera, birne, гру́ша [GROO-sha], and more to come). I’ll be sharing highlights of the exciting and interesting activities that are taking place to promote USA Pears around the world. My favorite pear variety is Comice. Yum!
