Shish Kabobs for the 4th of July?

Have you tried cooking shish kabobs for the 4th of July? The following recipe is from Cottonwood Cellars in Colorado. Whenever you have the opportunity to visit Colorado, be sure to take time to visit the wineries. The state is very supportive of the wine industry and the winemakers are very friendly.
