Directions
  1. Skewer fruit with short bamboo skewers, alternating to create an attractive pattern. Place skewers on a large plate.
  2. Whisk oil and agave nectar together in a small bowl until emulsified. Add cardamom and chia seeds and whisk well. Let mixture rest at least 5 minutes. Whisk again and check consistency. It should be quite thick.
  3. Stack mint leaves and cut crosswise into 1/8-inch-wide strips. Fluff to separate.
  4. Just before serving, brush agave mixture over both sides of skewered fruit. Sprinkle mint strips over both sides and serve at once.
