Unconventional Spring Grilling

"Have you ever grilled fruit?" asks arp29. "Peaches and pineapples are great grill options. I like to stuff the peaches with sweetened ricotta and almonds and I usually serve the pineapple with ice cream and various other additions." You can take the grilled peaches savory as well, as in CHOW's Grilled Chicken Sausages with Peach-Sage Skewers.

monavano likes grilling pit fruits in season, and also romaine lettuce. "Grilling the romaine & sliced Romas, then chopping it all up and making a Greek salad with it is delicious," adds Phurstluv.

LNG212 recommends asparagus, spring onions, and haloumi, a Mediterranean cheese that's often pan-fried. Haloumi also shows up in CHOW's Grilled Greek Salad, along with olives and red onions.

goodhealthgourmet loves to grill tomatillos for salsa, and recommends grilling avocado. "Try avocado ... cut in half, remove the pit, brush the cut side with a *teeny* bit of oil, and grill, cut side down, for a few minutes. Stuff as desired, and enjoy!"
