Repeat with one or more sets of strawberries

Leave a spot for the head at the top. About 1&1/2 in.

Take a strawberry and place it on a cutting board.

Cut a V in the end for the mouth. Keep the piece that you cut out for the tongue.

What are good fruits for a fruit kabob?

Seedless grapes, cubed melon, blackberries, raspberries, orange slices, and strawberries are great ideas for fruit kabobs.

Make Ahead and Storage

I would not recommend making a strawberry fruit kabob too long in advance. Strawberries are one of the most perishable fruits that don’t last long, even in the refrigerator.

Make this fruit kabob the day you intend on serving it
