There’s something about food on a stick that both kids and adults love. These colorful skewers are packed with protein and vegetables. Use any type of skewer you have on hand; I like to use 10-inch bamboo skewers. Feel free to get creative with how you layer the ingredients on the skewers, alternating colors and textures to keep things interesting.
