Expert Tips

You can use any firm cheese to substitute for the Havarti. Try Gouda, Cheddar, Colby or mozzarella.

The kabobs can be made up to 4 hours in advance. Place carefully in a plastic container and cover tightly for toting. Arrange for serving at your destination.

Garnish the outside of the platter of kabobs with rosemary sprigs to resemble a wreath.
