The flavors of this salad are bright and bold, perfect for pairing with barbecue fare. Choose stone fruits, pineapple, or pears for grilling, and finish with a splash of citrus. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for a true summer treat.
Notes
Chopped or torn mint is another excellent flavor pairing with the grilled fruit. A few leaves are often enough, as you don't want the mint to over power the fruit.
