Ingredients

  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 4 bananas, halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons simple syrup, recipe follows
Simple syrup:
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Directions

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat.

In a medium bowl, toss the fruit in the sugar to coat. Grill over medium heat, until a golden crust begins to form on the fruit, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

In another medium bowl, mix together the mint, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Arrange the fruit on a serving platter, drizzle the mint syrup over top, and serve.

Simple syrup:

In a saucepan, combine water and sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved. Take pan off heat and cool the syrup before using. Any extra cooled syrup can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Yield: 1/2 cup
