I think kebabs might be the single best Summer Entertaining recipe. They are the perfect thing to serve at a every type of party. Dinner party? Make them big. Cocktail party? Make them small. Vegetarian guest? Leave off the meat. They are made completely in advance, they are a full meal in one efficient package, and you can make them in endless varieties. Need one more reason? Budget friendly. A pound of steak, chicken or shrimp can be stretched to serve 3-4 people by adding colorful (and inexpensive) summer produce like squash and peppers. Oh, and they are healthy!
