My Fun Summer Aldi Kabob Party!

June 2013 009

I had the awesome opportunity to host a summer kabob party sponsored by Aldi, featuring food and beverages purchased exclusively from Aldi! My guests enjoyed fruit, dinner, and dessert kabobs, as well as some delicious beverages.

Here’s a detailed description of everything featured in my party…

Fruit Kabobs

I purchased strawberries, cantaloupe, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, and grapes for these scrumptious rainbow fruit kabobs. I got the idea from a picture on Pinterest and loved it. (I chose to use kiwi instead of green grapes, and it was a great choice but just took a bit longer because I had to peel and cut the kiwi pieces.)

The fruit kabobs were a HUGE hit with my guests…they loved the pretty display and commented on how refreshing the fruit tasted.

Dinner Kabobs

BBQ Chicken and Vegetable Kabobs

Ingredients:

  • Boneless, skinless fresh chicken breasts
  • Red, yellow, and green peppers
  • Pineapple
  • Sweet Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Grape Tomatoes
  • Zucchini
  • Whatever you want, really!

Marinade:

  • Aldi’s Tuscan Garden Classics Teriyaki 30-minute Marinade

I used wooden skewers; be sure to soak them for a few hours before grilling. The pineapple was a delicious touch with the chicken and veggies and worked perfectly with the marinade. My guests absolutely loved these kabobs! I made a whole bunch of them and we have a small grill, so it took my husband about an hour to grill them all, but it was worth it!!

Dessert Kabobs

These dessert kabobs were super easy and very yummy. Another big hit with my guests!

Ingredients:

  • Strawberries
  • Mini-marshmallows (Aldi also sells large ones; you could use either)
  • Strawberry cream filled waffle cookies
  • Brownies (purchased Aldi’s brownie mix and made it- quick and easy!)

You can add anything else that you’d like to these- I just love the combination of strawberries and chocolate. πŸ™‚

 

Drinks and Extras

I absolutely LOVE Aldi’s Fit&Active line (see a whole list of products available here), so I decided to give their Fit&Active fruit-flavored drinks a try. I was not disappointed! We also tried the Fruit Dazzle sparkling water, and all I can say is….WOW!!! So delicious and refreshing!! My guests’ favorite was the black cherry.

I couldn’t believe how perfect this was: Aldi was selling kabob plates at napkins at the time of my party about two weeks ago. Check it out- they might still be available in your store!

There’s plenty of time to head to Aldi and grab these items for your own fantastic summer kabob party! Locate your closest store here. Check out the yummy summer recipes on Aldi’s website here.
