Grilled Summer Fruit Packets with Greek Wine and Greek Yogurt


I loved grilled fruit, especially when seasoned with a little Greek wine. This is the perfect Mediterranean Diet dessert: light, fresh, easy, and made with healthy ingredients like fresh fruit and Greek yogurt. You can swap out the plums and grapes for peaches, nectarines and cherries. Served with Greek yogurt, this is an easy, elegant dessert perfect for every occasion.
