The Best Grilled Fruits


People in the South love their peaches. That’s why grilling them is such a great idea. Just drizzle them with a little olive oil first. Grilled peaches make for a delicious summertime backyard cookout dessert. Grilled peaches can stand on their own or you can top them with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.


Most people’s experience with grilled fruit comes in the form of pineapple chunks on a kebab. Take it up a notch and grill whole slices.


Grilled pears are also very delicious. Brush them with olive oil or butter and grill them cut side down. Takes about 10 minutes for them to heat up. Goes great in salads or as a dessert.


Grilled pork and mango pair insanely well together. Grill slices of mango for a side dish or use them in a Caribbean style mango salsa.

Other fruits that are great for grilling include watermelon, grapefruit, cherries, bananas, cantaloupe, and nectarines.
