“This is a super simple recipe I copied from the Whole Foods Market website. The grilled kielbasa have such a wonderful flavor. You can even use turkey kielbasa to save on calories and fat. I use more apple just because my kids like the way they taste off the grill. It's okay to let the ingredients sit in the lemon juice mixture for a few minutes. I was concerned about that at first, but it does not overpower or alter the flavor of the dish. I also don't use the skewers. I use a grilling basket - it's much faster!! I serve with couscous.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before grilling.
  2. Cut kielbasa, onion and apples into 2-inch pieces.
  3. Combine in a bowl with lemon juice, olive oil, black pepper and salt.
  4. Toss to coat.
  5. Preheat grill to medium high.
  6. Thread pieces of sausage, onion and apple pieces on skewers, alternating them.
  7. Grill 3 to 5 minutes each side, until apples and onions are slightly blackened on edges, yet still crisp inside, and sausage is very hot.
  8. Serve immediately.
