Grilled Fruit Kabobs

It is only mid-June but I’ve talked a lot about how I like to cook on the grill already.  So, it is probably no surprise that today’s recipe is for grilled fruit kabobs.  These grilled fruit kabobs are special though because they are basted with a citrus mint glaze while they are grilled which gives them an extra punch of flavor.

Amazingly delicious grilled fruit kabobs are perfect for summer.  They are marinated in a citrus mint syrup for an extra tasty flavor.

The great thing about fruit kabobs is that they are so versatile.  You can pick just about any fruit that is on sale and put it on the grill.  For these, I choose some stone fruits along with strawberries and pineapple.  Of course, the mint is a key ingredient to making these extra delicious.

    I love this idea because I have an oral allergy to most fruits (sucks), but once they are cooked, that magically goes away! I need a grill, and then I need to try this!
