Summer Grilling: Fruits, Chicken and Veggies Oh My!

Summer Grilling

Alright, we’ve made it. The first day of Summer. With summer, comes the swimming pools, baseball, frisbee, watermelon, and last but not least, the grill! There is no better time to start your summer grilling parties than right now. Let’s take a look at some of the best foods you can grill to make your summer parties perfection.

One of my favorite benefits of using the grill is the fact that while grilling, most of the fat drips off of the meat, allowing the the meat to be leaner and less grisly. Additionally, the flavors of the grill taste better to many. Summer grilling, leaves meat and vegetables with a smokey, or charred taste.  Overall, the grill is the perfect cooking tool in the summer when the weather is warm and you don’t want to be inside bent over the stove/oven all day. 

One of our favorite recipes (grilled fruit kebab)  is found below:

My family also greatly enjoys the simplicity of grilling chicken, sprinkled with delicious toppings.  The summer grilling experience only gets better when served with grilled asparagus, peppers, mushrooms, potatoes and tomatoes on the side and this concoction is a full fledged grilled feast for you and your family.

My family prefers the BBQ grilled version, but you can also choose citrus seasonings, salt and pepper and poultry seasonings to create a beautiful blend of your favorite flavors for all to enjoy.

Another option if you enjoy vegetables more than fruits is to create a beautiful blend of summer grilling perfection.

Grill up sweet potatoes, donuts, olives, romaine lettuce, brie cheese, flatbreads, quesadillas, nuts, peaches, watermelon, cauliflower, tofu and even bananas.
