No salt, no sugar Memorial Day recipes — a great grilled berry dessert

I love doing unexpected things with fruit, like the fruit pizza I’ve served guests. I’m going to have to try this one this Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day grilling recipes usually involve meat or fish or some sort, whether it be chicken or, my personal favorite, salmon. So I was intrigued to see this recipe on FoodNetwork.com for a grilled strawberry dessert.

Grilled strawberries? Sounds fun.
Grilled strawberries? Sounds fun.

Here’s the ingredient list and how I’d modify it to get some sugar and fat out of it:

24 ripe medium strawberries, hulled, about 1 1/2 pounds
1 tablespoon vegetable oil (maybe canola oil or olive oil instead?)
4 tablespoons pure maple syrup (a lot of sugar here, you could get sugar-free syrup instead)
1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves, torn
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
3 tablespoons lemon juice
