Grilled Fruit Salad with Lime Zest & Vanilla SugarThe flavors of this salad are bright and bold, perfect for pairing with barbecue fare. Choose stone fruits, pineapple, or pears for grilling, and finish with a splash of citrus. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a true summer treat.

Ingredients:

  • An assortment of fresh fruit (peaches, plums, pineapple, mango, or pears)
  • olive oil
  • 2 limes
  • vanilla sugar or honey, to taste

Instructions:

  1. Preheat grill to 400F.
  2. Wash fruit and prep for grill. Cut stone fruit into quarters, and pineapple into wedges.
  3. Toss fruit in a teaspoon or so of olive oil and place on the grill.
  4. Grill 4-5 minutes per side, or until grill marks show.
  5. Remove from grill onto a cutting board. Chop fruit into large, rustic chunks and add to a bowl.
  6. Squeeze lime juice over fruit and add zest. Sprinkle vanilla sugar or drizzle honey over fruit.
  7. Toss gently and serve at once.

Notes:

Chopped or torn mint is another excellent flavor pairing with the grilled fruit. A few leaves are often enough, as you don’t want the mint to over power the fruit.
