     One of the best things about summer is fresh produce and veggie kabobs are one of the easiest ways to use it. Take any combination of abundant veggies, put them on stick and cook them on the grill and you've made good use of your harvest as well as keeping the kitchen cool. There are many ways to season kabobs. Pineapple and soy sauce would give you another variation. Options are endless and easy.
