Summer is approaching, which means it is FINALLY time to heat up the grill! To all the grilling masters out there, are you ready for a little hidden  secret? It is common for people to assume only meats and veggies can be cooked on the grill, but guess what… many FRUITS are wonderful on the grill as well!  Grilling allows the sugars within the fruit to break down to create a juicy & intense flavor that pairs well with many dishes.

Shake up your meals this summer season by adding grilled fruit as a side or topping on your main dish.  You might even have to share your secret with your loved ones because they are going to be blown away by your amazing grilling skills!

I’ve collected a few unique & tasty grilled fruit recipes that are easy to prepare & serve to your family.

Grilled Tomato Recipes

Yes, tomatoes are indeed considered a fruit! Personally, I believe tomatoes are one of the easiest fruits to throw on the grill.  For best results, use a grill grate or skewers to prevent your tomatoes from falling apart inside your grill.  Bonus: Did you know that tomatoes are one of the rare produce items that gain MORE nutrients when they are cooked?!
