I’ll always remember the first time.
The first time I had grilled fruit. It was grilled pineapple and it was one of those “aha” recipe creation moments.
Up until now, I’ve only really experimented with grilling fruit (mainly stone fruit like peaches, plums, apricots) for desserts. Drizzled with olive oil and honey and done.
So, I figured it was time to expand my grilled fruit horizons. From cocktails to salads to entrees, grilled fruit is HOT this summer (OK…bad pun.)
I’ve been wanting to make Serena’s Grilled Watermelon Salad for 3 summers now (she made it for one of our first Recipe ReDux posts!) and earlier this week, I finally did. In the past, I’ve done watermelon salad with feta and mint (SO GOOD) but never had tried it a) grilled or b) with Parmesan cheese (SO SO SO GOOD!)
And to really expand my and your grilled fruit repertoire, I give you this fun and tasty recipe roundup. (First up for me? Those grilled fruit adult beverages…)
