Sweet-for-Summer Grilled Fruit Kebabs

Prepare to be awed by the side dish of summer! These kebabs call for fresh, in-season produce such as stone fruit, mango and juicy pineapple. Fire ‘em up on the grill and serve with a drizzle of sweet cinnamon-spiced syrup. Plate over a bed of your favorite rice or ancient grains (we suggest our zesty turmeric-spiced quinoa recipe) and a glass of ice-cold summery sangria for a seasonally appropriate meal.
