3. Now, this is something new. How about grilled avocado? Which you can make into guacamole! Or you could you use it as a bowl for a salad of herbs, cherry tomatoes, and pine nuts. Yummo!

6. And finally, have you ever tried to grill fruit? It’s incredibly easy and healthy! Try this pineapple but if it’s sweet enough, you could definitely pass on the brown sugar. And these Grilled Figs with Honeyed Marscapone look like the best dessert in the entire world.
