By Danielle Isbell
Ready, set, GRILL. Grilling season isn’t over yet! And if you haven’t tried your favorite fruit on the grill, trust us, you’re missing out. Flames have a caramelizing effect on naturally sweet fruits, making grilled fruit a fab addition to everything from salads to flatbreads or dessert.

Grilled Grapefruit with Mascarpone
We think grapefruit absolutely belongs on the grill, and so does La Receta de la Felicidad. Instead of sprinkling granulated sugar on a grapefruit in the morning, douse a sliced grapefruit with melted butter and brown sugar for gorgeous, sweet-and-slightly-sour treat. Find the recipe here.
