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

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 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

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.
