Bocconcini is a pretty Italian name that means "little bites".


Ingredients

1 Box (450 g) of strawberries, hulled
3 peaches, each cut in quarters
7 oz (200 g) Canadian Bocconcini, each cut in quarters
1/4 cup (60 mL) pure apple juice
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh mint, chopped
2 tbsp (30 mL) fresh basil, chopped

Preparation

Preheat grill to medium.

Put strawberries on skewers if small, and place on grill along with peach quarters. Cook about 5 minutes, turning them over at least once.

Remove skewers and place the fruit in a salad bowl.

Add Bocconcini, apple juice, mint and basil. Stir well.

Serve as an appetizer or as the perfect accompaniment for grilled dishes such as pork chops.

Tips

Add a touch of honey or maple syrup to turn the dish into a dessert, or add salt and pepper or a few drops of balsamic glaze for an appetizer.

Cheese alternative: Canadian Feta.
