Boat Skewers

I love to use skewers in all of my cooking, whether it’s for business or pleasure, and especially for snacks. Skewers, large or small, make it very easy to create really fun and versatile snacks, and you don’t need plates or tableware. These tasty little snacks use toothpicks and are probably the most versatile yet, with endless options for tasty snacks for boating, camping or any outdoor adventure. Here are just a few ideas, but use whatever vegetables, fruits and other treats that you and your family enjoy.

The only real “trick” with this recipe is to make a base by cutting the fruit or veggie so that it will stand up, such as halved mozzarella balls, mushroom caps, sliced apple or anything that has a flat, stable bottom.
Place the base treat on the bottom and add a few more choices until the skewer is filled. I like to mix it up with several skewers of just fruit, some with just vegetables and then a few with marinated vegetables, but let your friends and family decide and have fun!
Yield: As many as you like
