Grilled Fruit Kabobs

This is a refreshing dessert to cap off a summer barbecue.  The fruit needs only to be heated, so cooking time is short.  For a variation on this recipe, soak the fruit in orange juice or brush with rum before grilling.  Be sure the grill is cleaned well before barbecuing. I suggest serving these kabobs with a yogurt dip.
