Grilled fruit kebabs are a unique and fun way to enjoy fruit at your Labor Day barbecue. You can serve them along with grilled chicken or burgers. You can also add some cut-up chicken or shrimp to the kebabs. Or, eat them alone if you want to savor the sweet fruit one last time before summer comes to an end!
