      This was nice and easy (just like the title says). I made a couple of changes. I didn't use grapefruit sections, because of my picky eaters. Instead I used orange sections. But I did buy a large grapefruit and juice it for the marinade. This only made 2/3 cup of juice, so I topped it off with some tangerine juice in the fridge. I used Triple Sec for the liquor. I didn't peel the apples or peaches. One thing I would change next time... I doubt I would use the bananas again. I had firm but ripe bananas, and when I left them to marinate for 1 hour, they kind of dissolved a bit and got mushy. They also were difficult to keep on the skewer, and some pieces split and fell off. So I would just not bother with the bananas next time. I served this as a side dish to Artichoke and Basil Hero Sandwich for dinner last night. Thanks!
