Mini Party Kabobs


2-3 Mini Cucumbers or 1 English cucumber
1-2 carrots
1/2 pkg. grape tomatoes
2-3 celery stalks
2 bell peppers (red, green, yellow, or orange)
Mini-bamboo skewers, 4.5-inch China knot or looped bamboo
          skewer or other decorative skewer
Optional other vegetables:  pearl onions, radishes, etc.

Make 5-6 cuts down length of cucumbers, make cut on each side
of each cut, to remove small triangle of rind, so cucumber
slices resemble flower petals when sliced. If using regular
cucumber, you may have to quarter the slices.

Slice carrots with wavy vegetable cutter or knife.

Wash tomatoes.

Slice celery.

Cut bell peppers into squares.

Alternate ingredients on mini-bamboo skewers. Optional, stand
each skewer upright on a serving plate. To get the skewers to
stay upright, add carrot or mini-cucumber slice last, at the
bottom of skewer.
