Shish kabobs are a healthy go-to for any barbecue. They are extremely easy to prepare and all about the basics: meat and veggies. This summer, mix up your routine and try one (or all!) of these tasty dipping sauces for some fabulously fun skewers.
Chimichurri is a popular Argentinian dipping sauce made from parsley, olive oil, garlic, vinegar, onions and other spices. Because chimichurri uses only a handful of ingredients, it’s a cinch to blend together in the kitchen. It tastes delicious on steak and grilled vegetables – you may even want to marinate the steak overnight before skewering it for your kabobs for extra kick.
COOL MINT YOGURT DIP
Make skewers of lamb, peppers and onions with a mint yogurt dip for a Mediterranean-inspired meal. The mint adds a refreshing taste to the slightly spicy lamb and this unique recipe will stand out as a favorite against the more commonplace barbecue foods.
SMOKY BBQ SAUCE
If you like good ol’ fashioned barbecue sauce, this one’s for you. In addition to being mouth-wateringly thick and sweet, this sauce can be made with your normal pantry items, which is convenient when you’re planning a last minute meal. It tastes great on chicken kabobs and, if you have any sauce leftover, you can get out the crockpot and plan for pulled pork dinner later in the week.
