Every spring I count down the days to summer. My birthday always tends to fall on the same weekend too as the launch of sumer so I always like to celebrate that as well. I love to have a gathering of friends and family on my patio, fire up the grill and enjoy a delicious meal with plenty of food! Kebobs are always a delicious and easy meal to prepare and this year I’ll be serving Sesame Ginger Chicken Kebobs and Ginger Cucumber Salad to all my guests!
Kebobs are my go-to summer meal because you can marinate the meat and vegetables in almost any combination of flavors and skewer everything for a quick meal. I decided that I was going to put an Asian spin on my meal this year and made kebobs using Sesame Ginger dressing from Litehouse. Not only is this a delicious dressing but it also makes the perfect marinade for chicken, beef and fish! It is loaded with sesame, soy and ginger flavors that infuse into your meat with a quick marinade.
It’s my opinion that every meal needs a crunchy side salad, so I decided to whip up a Ginger Cucumber Salad to go along with my kebobs. The combination of sugar snap peas and crunchy cucumbers for a fresh taste and a salad that would hold up well if made ahead of time. In fact, this salad is even more delicious if you allow the flavors to infuse for a few hours before serving.
Whether you’re hosting a party this Memorial Day or just celebrating with your family, these Sesame Ginger Chicken Kebobs and salad are the perfect reason to fire up the grill and get a head start on summer!
