1 pineapple OR 1 can pineapple chunks
1 pint strawberries
2 to 3 peaches
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
1/8 cup chopped fresh mint leaves OR 1 tablespoon dried mint
1 cup toasted coconut (optional)
Wooden shish kebab skewers
Soak wooden shish kebab skewers in water to prevent scorching on the grill. Prepare grill for medium heat.
Peel and core the pineapple and cut into 2" chunks. Peel the bananas and cut into 5 or 6 large pieces, sprinkle lightly witha small amount of lemon or lime juice, reserving remaining juice for the dressing. Cut the plums and the peaches in halves, discarding pits, then cut into 2" chunks. Wash and hull strawberries. Thread prepared fruit, onto wooden skewers, just as you would a shish kabab, alternating various pieces of fruit on each kebab.
Place the fruit pieces on the grill for 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. In the meantime, preprare dressing by combining the honey, lime or lemon juice, and the chopped mint in a small bowl. Brush the fruit with the honey mixture during the last 4-5 minutes of cooking. Place the kebabs on a serving platter, brush or drizzle with any remaining honey mixture, and top with toasted coconut, if desired.
Recipe makes 8 servings.
