Grilled Apricot Salad by Jamie Oliver

When I first tasted Italian fruit salad, I changed the concept of the salad itself. From an everyday side dish, it has turned into a real gastronomic experience. This recipe is a celebration of color and taste! Apricots can be substituted with other seasonal fruits with seeds, but I like them because of the edible marzipan-flavored kernels.
