It’s summertime you guys. Okay, well technically it starts on June 20th but it was over 100 degrees here in some parts of LA.

If that’s not summer, then I don’t know what it is.

So go ahead and start firing up those grills because it’s time to make some kabobs.

The easiest 4 ingredients kabobs you’ll ever make.

And what makes this so easy is how you can assemble everything ahead of time, and you have the option to use store-bought or homemade pesto, although you know I’ll always push for the homemade version.

Don’t worry – that comes together in just 5 min too in a food processor.

See. Easy!
