Fruit and Cheese Appetizer Skewers

When you want a lavish party with appetizers, main course and desserts, yet you want to keep it as simple as possible, fruits and cheese are the best combinations for an appetizer. My husband made these for me once, and since then these simple Fruit and Cheese Sticks have become my favourites! With all the goodness of fruits, lots of anti-oxidants, vitamins, fiber and water content, as well as the proteins coming from the cheese , they are a perfect snack anytime of the day. Believe me, these tiny delights are so good you wouldn't be able to stop at one:)

1 pkt Monterey-Jack Cheese-cut into small cubes (you can choose any other cheese too)
seedless red/green grapes
small strawberries - cut into halves

kiwis (optional) - cut into small pieces
fresh pineapples - cut into cubes the size of the cheese cubes
Toothpicks or small wooden skewers

For Dipping Sauce
1 small pkt of JELL-O Vanilla Pudding
1 pkt flavored low-fat yogurt (strawberry or peach)

Arrange 2 pieces of cheese cubes, grapes and strawberries on each toothpick.
Make the jello pudding as directed on the packet. Serve these beautiful and tasty fruit and cheese kababs with the flavored yoghurt and pudding as dipping sauces. This makes a great appetizer or a side dish with salads.

Tip: If you are not keen on the sweet dipping sauces, you can combine lemon juice, sugar, and some chaat masala and drizzle it on the fruits only (not cheese) before arranging the sticks and serve it as a sweet and sour treat!
