Sensational Sirloin Kabobs

  Great kabob recipe for summer grilling! If you like the green peppers crunchy, you shouldn’t blanch them. Serves well with rice, you can save some of the marinade to pour over the rice if you like.   Click here for the recipe.

This is one of my favorite Ina Garten,  the Barefoot Contessa’s recipe. It can be served cold or at room temperature so it is a great salad for those backyard cookouts. The recipe is available here
