Honey-Citrus-Olive Oil Fruit Kebabs

Contributed by: NAPSA

Fresh Fruit Kebabs Full Of Flavor, Not Fat

(NAPSA) - Delicious desserts are the grand finale of any meal. For a light, flavorful dessert that is also guilt-free, try Honey-Citrus-Olive Oil Fruit Kebabs. Seasonal fruits such as cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple and strawberries make this one sweet treat you can feel good about eating.

Honey-Citrus-Olive Oil Fruit Kebabs
To assemble the kebabs, place fresh fruit on bamboo skewers, then drizzle with a glaze of honey, lemon juice, orange liqueur and extra virgin olive oil. Though more commonly used on vegetables and pastas, olive oil is versatile, full of flavor and can be used with a variety of foods, including fruit. Sprinkle kebabs with chopped mint leaves and powdered sugar. Serve alone or pair with lemon sorbet and cold-press coffee or iced tea for a more sophisticated take on this tasty dessert.

With fresh, light flavors, fruit kebabs are a great way to satisfy sweet cravings. For more recipes and other cooking tips using heart-healthy olive oil, visit www.aboutoliveoil.org.

Ingredients:

  • Glaze:

    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 2 tablespoons Cointreau or any similar orange liqueur
    • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    • 2 to 3 mint leaves, chopped

  • Kebab:

    • 8 bamboo sticks (6 to 8 inches)
    • 8 (1-inch) cantaloupe or honeydew wedges, cut in 1-inch pieces
    • 8 pineapple slices, cut in 1-inch squares
    • 8 large strawberries
    • 1 pint lemon fruit sorbet, optional

Directions:

In a bowl, add the honey, lemon juice and Cointreau; use whisk to blend. Little by little, gradually whisk in the olive oil. Add mint and continue mixing. Reserve.

On each bamboo stick, place one piece of melon, then pineapple and end with the strawberry. Arrange two kebabs on 4 serving plates; drizzle with the glaze. To serve, sprinkle kebabs with powdered sugar and decorate with a mint leaf. Serve with lemon sorbet, if desired.

Tip:

For this recipe, find melons that are in season. Cantaloupe or honeydew work well with the flavors.
