One of my favorite things about summer, aside from the longer days, weekends spent at the beach and warm, tropical weather, is the abundance of fresh fruit. I wait all year long for the first of the peaches, cherries and plums to show up at my grocery store and I could nosh on summer stone fruit all day long and be perfectly content. I’m constantly adding my favorite summer fruits into recipes whether being a salad, dessert or appetizer, nothing tastes better than fresh, seasonal produce! Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Apricots and Pineapple are always, always, always on my weekly grocery list and lately I’ve been enjoying them straight of the grill! Here are a few easy and delicious grilled fruit recipes…
This simple grilled pineapple recipe makes for the perfect summer dessert. Simply grill both sides of the pineapple and top with coconut whipped cream and chopped hazelnuts…yum!!
Not only is this a beautiful appetizer but the combination of grilled apricot and prosciutto is not to be missed. These would pair deliciously with a crisp glass of rosé and a warm, sunny afternoon!
These grilled peaches are topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar when they are pulled off the grill and sound absolutely delicious. Almost like a lightened up, deconstructed peach pie!
This grilled watermelon and peach salad is not to be missed. Grilling watermelon gives it a semi-smoky flavor which is a wonderful compliment to the pistachio and mint pesto!
This salad is so simple and the grilled nectarines really get to shine. Tossed with balsamic syrup…what a delicious combo!
