Tips

Expert Tips

  • For a pretty presentation, place romaine leaves on a large serving platter and arrange kabobs on top.
  • Fresh pineapple is available all year round, but the peak season is from March to July. Look for pineapple that is slightly soft to the touch with good color and a fruity aroma. Store pineapple in the refrigerator.
