Grilled Fruit Kabobs by Helen Agresti, R.D.

Grilled Fruit Kabobs

Grilled fruit kabobs are a great way to get kids cooking in the kitchen.  Our kids love being creative with fruit.  These kabobs make the simplest dish look like a gourmet meal.  The heat from the grill enhances the sweet flavors of the fruit.  This makes grilled fruit kabobs the perfect accompaniment for a savory piece of chicken or fish-not to mention a very nutritious one too.

 

Ingredients
•    1 c strawberries, sliced
•    3 kiwi, sliced
•    1 c mango, chopped
•    6-8 skewers
•    balsamic glaze, to taste

Directions
1. Soak skewers in cold water for 15 minutes.
2. Heat grill on low-medium heat.
3. Pick 3 or 4 of your favorite fruits.  Slice into bite size pieces.
4. Thread 3 pieces of each fruit onto each skewer in any order you prefer.
5. Spray a piece of foil with no-stick cooking spray. Place the skewers onto foil and drizzle with balsamic glaze. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side.
