Purchase Propane Tank- Check.

Once you buy a propane tank, you’ve unlocked a whole world of grilling possibilities and if you’re like the majority of Americans, you’re about to discover a whole new world of cooking possibilities. Things that once seemed boring and dull to cook are now injected with a new excitement that will have you thrilled to be spending time in your backyard with a grilling apron around your waist and a few grilling utensils in hand.

Without Further Ado…Salad Kabobs!

What are the elements that go into your favorite salad? With a bit of thought, you can put a unique twist on an old favorite. Love a caesar salad? Grab your skewers and quickly grill up some spinach, tomatoes, and french bread pieces, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese and a side of caesar dressing. Feel free to add cooked chicken pieces to your skewers to take it up a notch!

Our favorite recipe, however, is for a caprese salad kabob. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Bread pieces,
  • Tomato,
  • Fresh mozzarella,
  • Olive oil,
  • And basil.

Start by cutting your ingredients into appropriately sized pieces. Wrap your mozzarella in basil, then skewer everything and brush with olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over medium-high heat for a few minutes on each side, but don’t overdo it! You don’t want your mozzarella to turn into a melty mess, but instead to get warm enough to get a little soft.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
