Alongside the hot dogs, burgers and boneless chicken breasts, add fruit like pineapple, peaches and bananas. You can grill ripe strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries in a grill basket. Grilling brings out the caramelly sugars in ripe summer fruits, making them perfect for side dishes and desserts.
- To grill fruit, heat your grill to 350-450 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 to 15 minutes and clean the grates.
- Prep your fruit. Slice pineapple 1/4-inch thick, cut peaches and bananas in half, rinse berries.
- Place pineapple, peaches and bananas directly on the grill. Use a grill basket for small fruits like berries.
- Grill fruit for about six to eight minutes, turning when golden brown.
