Grill your favorite summer fruits like peaches, watermelon, strawberries and kiwi and drizzle them with mint and balsamic glaze for a delicious dessert or side dish.
There’s nothing like the sweetness of fresh fruit during the height of summer.
Grilled fruit kebabs are the perfect side or dessert to go with any grilled meal.
Juicy watermelon, sweet tender peaches, fresh strawberries and kiwi are grilled to perfection and a delicious way to enjoy summer’s sweet fruits.
While peaches and watermelon are more obvious fruits that are easy and delicious to grill, don’t forget about underappreciated fruits like strawberries and kiwifruit.
The grill is not just for meat and vegetables!
There are so many fruits right in counter fruit bowl that can go on the grill like pineapple, pears, nectarines, bananas and mangoes.
Even grapefruit is delicious grilled!
Grilled fruit kebabs are easy to make, caramelize beautifully and taste delicious drizzled with balsamic glaze and a sprinkle of fresh mint.
Grilling draws out the sweet flavor of the fruit and the balsamic glaze adds a tang. With the mint there is no need for any added sugar.
My son suggested we top the fruit kabobs with a drizzle of chocolate and maybe next time add angel food cake cubes to the skewers.
That’s my boy!
Pair these sweet grilled fruits kabobs with my Fall Off The Bone Baby Back Ribs or Beer Can Chicken for a complete meal.
