Grilled Plum & Strawberry Skewers with Sweet Mint Pesto
In a blender or small food processor, combine mint, basil, pine nuts, orange peel, orange juice and salt. Cover and blend or process until smooth, stopping and scraping sides as needed. Set aside.Advertisement
Thread plum wedges and strawberries on eight 6-inch-long skewers (see Tip). Lightly coat fruit with cooking spray. For a charcoal grill, grill skewers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through and grill marks are visible, turning occasionally to brown evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
Serve skewers with pesto.
Tip If using wooden skewers, soak skewers in enough water to cover for at least 1 hour before grilling.
1 fruit, 1/2 fat
