The 5 fruit you need to be grilling right now
If you're not grilling fruit this season, you're doing summer wrong.
Think about it: Fruits are full of sugar, which caramelizes as they cook and provides a sweet counterpoint to the smoky char of the grill. Not sweet enough? Drizzle on some honey. Looking for a little something extra? Serve it a la mode.
There are so many ways to enjoy grilled fruit this summer. Here are our favorites.
Slice a pineapple into spears, slap it on the grill for a few minutes, then glaze it with cinnamon and honey. Low effort, high reward.

So you think strawberries are too small to grill? Not if you threat them onto skewers. It doesn't take long to get a little char on these berries. Don't forget to glaze them for added decadence.

No one said grilled fruit has to be reserved for dessert. Season watermelon with salt and pepper before the grill, then top it with burrata after. Are you feeling adventurous?

Go totally savory with grilled avocado filled with (bonus) grilled chickpeas. It's fruit, but it's not sweet. Intriguing.
