A simple wooden skewer may be the answer to all your mealtime needs — if you need something that’s quick, fun and delicious, that is! Give new life to staple ingredients by threading them onto skewers for a refreshing twist on dinner.

Cook your entire meal on the grill — including the sides. Nancy Fuller’s vegetarian skewers include peppers, onions and pineapple, and get spiced up with a zesty honey-lime vinaigrette.

These fiery kebabs are super-simple to pull off. Thread chicken tenders, celery (yes, it tastes great grilled!) and tomatoes onto a skewer and baste with Buffalo sauce. Don’t forget the blue cheese dressing.
