I have had a lifelong affinity for anything strawberry. This recipe came from a friend many years ago, but I adapted it to suit our particular tastes. It's quick and easy to prepare but is an impressive dessert to serve company. For variety, I've also used fresh peaches or nectarines.

Once it is grilled, just add ice cream and you have a heavenly dessert without heating up your kitchen. — Kathleen Hedger, Fairview Hts, Illinois
