Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

"Mojito" typically refers to a cocktail made with lime juice, sugar, mint leaves and rum. We've taken those same flavors and turned them into a refreshing kabob.

One-third cup frozen (thawed) limeade concentrate can be substituted for the rum.
