There are so many delicious fruits still in season. Fruit has an abundance of nutrients. Vitamins, minerals, fiber, water, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories.
Have you tried them grilled? They have a fresh taste and are naturally sweet. Fruit makes a wonderful dessert and kids really like them once they give them a try! They really complement meals prepared on the grill such as BBQ chicken or ribs, burgers and brats.
Fruit can be grilled with or without a marinade or they can just be marinated and served with fresh herbs. Try these ideas or get creative and make up your own!
