Grilled Stone Fruit Salad

Summer is the time we enjoy grilling and adding fresh fruit to our menu, and this smoky-sweet salad is the best of both worlds! I like to marinate the fruit for extra flavor before I grill them. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh mint
  • 2 peeled peaches, pitted and halved
  • 3 medium plums, pitted and halved
  • 4 apricots, pitted and halved
  • 1/4 fresh pineapple, cut into 4 slices
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 6 ounces fresh baby arugula
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  • In a large shallow bowl, whisk together 3 tablespoons lemon juice, melted butter and mint. Add fruit; marinate 30 minutes, turning once. Drain, reserving marinade.
  • Grill fruit, covered, on a greased grill rack over medium-high direct heat 4-6 minutes. Turn; brush with reserved marinade. Grill, uncovered, brushing again, until fruit is tender but not mushy, 4-6 more minutes. Remove from heat; cool 5-10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut fruit into quarters.

    I loved this! I only used peaches and pineapple. The feta cheese is just delightful!

    We love to grill fruit so this salad was just right for us. I added extra pineapple as we can’t get enough of it! Delicious!

    This is a good salad and a nice change from the usual salad by using the fruit. The plums seemed to absorb the lemon juice whereas the other fruit didn't have much if any taste of lemon. Honestly, I'm not sure I will make it again, but I am keeping the recipe in my box, just not in my book of "knock your socks off" recipes.
