Grilling the Fruit
Heat the grill, once heated turn down to low.
Prepare the fruit for grilling. You can cut the peaches, apricots, plums in half and remove the pit, or you can cut in large chunks to skewer.
Skewer the pitted cherries and pineapple chunks.
Lightly sprinkle olive oil over the fruit and sprinkle with sugar if desired.
Place the fruit on the hot grill for about 5 minutes, turn and grill for 5 more minutes. At this time you need to watch your fruit, turning occasionally until the juices are bubbling and grill marks appear on the fruit. Some fruits will grill faster than others so pull them off when done.
Remove all fruit from grill and let cool. Once cooled chop and place in a bowl.
While the fruit is cooling mix the mascarpone cheese, honey, lime juice and lime zest in a small bowl.
Spread the mascarpone cheese on a rimmed plate and spoon the chopped fruit on top. Grate additional lime zest on top for garnish.Serve with pita chips for dipping. Alternately, you can chop all the fruit, mix with the olive oil and sugar and place in a grill pan. Grill over low, stirring the fruit occasionally.You still will want very small chunks for fruit for dipping.
