Directions

  • 1 In blender, place plums and lemonade concentrate. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth; set aside. In 2-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Cook onion in butter about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir plum mixture and remaining sauce ingredients into onions. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, mix apricot nectar, apricots and shallots. Heat to boiling over medium heat; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 3 to 5 minutes or until most of nectar is absorbed. Stir in remaining salsa ingredients except parsley; heat through. Stir in parsley.
  • 3 Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Thread 4 or 5 meat pieces alternately with potatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, bell pepper and onion on each of 8 large (15-inch) or 16 small metal or bamboo skewers, leaving space between each piece.
  • 4 Cover and grill kabobs over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning and brushing 2 or 3 times with dressing, until meats are done. When done, beef, chicken and sausage are no longer pink in center and shrimp are pink and firm. Serve kabobs with warm or cold sauce and salsa.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Be sure to buy mushrooms that are big enough to slip onto a skewer. You can buy whole mushrooms in packages, but you have more control over size when you select them individually from a supermarket salad bar or bulk vegetable section.

Great for a party! Involve your guests in building their own kabobs with a selection of meats and vegetables. It’s a great way to add some new fun to an old grilling standby.

In a hurry? Purchase the basting and dipping sauces instead of making them from scratch.
