Now please guys, don’t start praying for snow just yet alright?
I promise to leave you alone with my grilled stuff… soon!
In fact, this would be the last one in line for the “On The Grill!” series. There are no more in my queue, I swear.
Not saying I won’t be throwing anything else on the grill for the remainder of the summer, ‘cuz that would be asking too much.
But I shall give you guys a little break.
And let me tell you this might be the last, but it’s certainly not the least!
Boy, does grilling fruits ever take a fruit salad to the next level! Seriously, I should’ve tried that WAY before. It’s like fruit salad to the 10th power!
It’s just like taking a very simple light summer dish and turning it into this super fancy extraordinary dessert And hey, you don’t even need to booze it up to it to take it to such a high level of greatness.
Couldn’t ask for much better than that! This, to me, is the ultimate summer dessert, or snack, or even breakfast.
Yeah… I did have mine for breakfast, how’d you guess?
Granted, this takes a little bit more time and preparation than a conventional fruit salad would, and you can’t really use the same kinds of fruits that we are so used to seeing in a fruit salad, but still, there are A LOT of possibilities here. So many different flavor combinations to explore…
For instance, I would’ve loved to have a pineapple on hand. Or a fresh coconut, maybe!
For a real tropical twist, plantain would’ve been delicious, I’m sure.
Guava? Yes please!
Hey, who ever said that a BBQ was a man thing and was meant to grill steaks and hamburgers and hot-dogs?
Certainly not me! Not buyin’ it!
In fact, mine has barely seen any meat at all this summer…
But trust me, it’s seen its fair share of fruits and veggies!
Oh, and pizza dough, too! 😉
One more thing…
Remember that delicious Pomegranate Agrodolce I made not too long ago?
Well, it works magically well with this fruit salad!
In fact, the fruit salad was mainly inspired BY the Agrodolce. If you don’t have any, it’s not an absolute necessity that you make some. But if you happen to have some on hand, or even just a simple balsamic reduction, by all means, drizzle some of that on top of this beautiful dish.
Take my word for it. Trust me, you won’t regret it!
