Have you tried Grilled fruit in a salad?

I know we use apples and pears on salads, and we grill veggies meats and fish which we put over the salad..But has anyone used grilled fruit on their greens? If so please share your salad with us..It's new to me.
We had a tossed green this noon and on it I put some grilled whited peaches, then added some crisp bacon, red onion rings,shaved parm and a honey lemon vinegrette, Truly a new taste for us..We've had all types of fruit grilled but it was in the dessert mode..This was so nice and refreshing with iced mango tea and some warm buiscuits and honey butter..Really nice and looking forward to when our nectarine are ready..

I have grilled some pineapple to use in my chicken curry before.

I will have to try some grilled pear for my pear and blue cheese salad with blueberries. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Grilled fruit and vanilla ice cream go well.

Just two days ago I made a platter of grilled honeydew, cantaloupe, pineapple and watermelon slices. I served it with a poppyseed aioli, crumbled blue cheese and toasted pecans. Yum.

Mixed greens with grilled banana, grilled pineapple, coconut shreds & poppyseed-type dressing

(and of course, some type of rum drink to go with it!)

Paula Deen grilled mangoes, put vanilla ice cream and a raspberry puree over them. I tried it and it is delicious.

That sounds great and we will have to try it. But what I was wondering was how many of us use grilled fruit on a salad?
