Grilled Fruit Kebabs

Guess what? Meat isn’t the only thing you can throw on the grill. Fruit tastes great when it’s lightly seared—it brings out the sweetness and makes ripe produce even more gooey and delicious. Try this fruit-y take on a kebab with a scrumptious balsamic glaze as a side at your next meal or add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a part sweet, part savory summer dessert.

  • Turn on grill.
  • For glaze: In a small saucepan over high heat, boil vinegar until it reduces by half (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat, then add butter, honey, basil and salt and whisk until smooth and blended.
  • For skewers: Thread pineapple and mango onto skewers and brush with balsamic glaze. When fire is medium hot (you can hold your hand above it for a for seconds), grill fruit, turning a few times, until browned and slightly softened, about 10 minutes.
  • Serve drizzled with any remaining balsamic glaze.
