If you can't find burrata for this savory fruit salad recipe--balls of fresh mozzarella cheese filled with curd and cream--use very fresh mozzarella instead: it won't have the oozing creaminess but the dish will still be delicious.

  • Skewer 6 to 7 grapes onto each of 12 skewers. Reserve the marinade.

  • Heat a grill pan over high heat or preheat grill to high. Grill the grapes until lightly charred, turning once, about 2 minutes total.
