  • 1 cup Italian dressing or vinaigrette
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce

1. Slice potatoes crosswise into 1/2 inch round slices. Cook potato slices in a large pot of boiling water until crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Drain; cool.

2. On each of 12 skewers, thread ingredients in the following order:  pepper to secure food, potato, pineapple, pepper, onion, salmon, onion.

3. Repeat, beginning with potato, until each skewer holds about eight inches of ingredients. End each skewer with pepper to secure. Continue with remaining skewers.

4. Place skewers in a 13 x 9 inch pan and drizzle Italian dressing on top.

5. Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour, or until time to grill. Prepare grill.

6. Grill kebabs, turning and basting often with barbecue sauce, about 6 - 7 minutes or until brown. Serve kebabs with lime wedge garnish.
