Grilled Fruit Salad #LetsGrill

Who doesn’t love a nice grilled dinner? I love grilling anytime of the year but summer and grilling go hand in hand at our house. I have grilled everything. And by everything I mean bacon and meatballs have in fact hit my grill. One of my new favorite things to grill is fruit. Grilled pineapple? Divine. Grilled watermelon? Let’s not talk about it. Grilled grapefruit? Where have you been all my life?

The first time I grilled grapefruit it slipped out of the peel so easily that I thought why not use the grapefruit shell as a bowl and make a deliciously healthy grilled fruit dessert? It was love at first thought and so I created. After just one spoonful of this amazing fruit salad I may never go back to traditional fresh fruit salad. It’s so good you won’t believe it isn’t “real” dessert.

Grilled fruit salad is perfect as a dinner side, a guilt-free dessert, or topping for ice cream or angel food cake.  Homemade whipped cream would be a perfect finish if you are looking for just a teeny tiny bit of guilt with that dessert. You could even use it to top your morning oatmeal or pancakes.

Grilled Fruit Salad


  • 1 large pink grapefruit
  • 3 – 1/2-1 inch thick slices fresh pineapple
  • 1 cup cherries, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons caramelized honey


  • Pre-heat grill on medium/high for just a few minutes.
  • Put cherries, blueberries, and honey in a small cast iron skillet on the grill.
  • Put slices of pineapple and grapefruit cut side down on the grill.
  • Close lid and let cook for 5 minutes.
  • Check fruit for grill marks and flip. Give fruit in pan a stir.
  • Cover and let grill another 5-7 minutes.
  • Pull fruit off grill.
  • Dice pineapple.
  • Run paring knife around inside edge of grapefruit, then gently turn peel partially inside out to release as much of grapefruit as possible. Scrape out remaining grapefruit and remove separators and pulp.
  • Mix together all fruit in pan.
  • Fill grapefruit shells and serve.

Makes 2 grapefruit bowls with enough fruit left over for 1 more person. I say eat the leftovers before you serve so no one is the wiser that there were extras.

      Easiest thing ever. I want to try adding some infused honey after I flip it over to finish next time. Maybe a little crystallized ginger. Mmm.
