Go beyond burgers and steaks and grill fresh fruit to serve as a side dish, salad, or dessert. Grilling fresh fruit brings out even more of its natural sweetness and creates a mouthwatering dish.

    I made tonight with peaches and papaya. I used a honey ginger balsamic from one of those olive oil stores. Was amazing drizzled on the peach and papaya off the grill. I recco using a firm peach, the riper, it gets a tad mushy on the grill. Very tasty. Yummmm! Tried to give 5 stars but phone wouldn’t let me.
