Grilling is a fun summer activity that can be simple, quick and nutritious! Important grilling safety tips:

  1. Check for any loose wire bristles after cleaning the grill grate.
  2. Consider using a meat thermometer to check for doneness.
  3. Use two sets of utensils and platters for raw and cooked meats.

Now let's revamp our grilling options! Try grilling salmon on wooden cedar planks! Find the planks at hardware stores in the grilling section.

Grill fruit such as skewered grapes, peaches, and pineapple. Add diced grilled fruit to salads, salsa or on top of ice cream.

Make a chimichurri sauce to drizzle on grilled meats, vegetables and corn on the cob. This can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge until dinner time.

Have a grilled salad for dinner. Use romaine or spinach, or even grilled romaine or grilled radicchio, for a base. Add grilled toppings such as meat, fish, scallions, shaved corn on the cob. Other topping options could include nuts, feta, berries, raw diced vegetables, hard boiled egg, fresh herbs, salad dressing.  To complete the meal, lightly grill a fresh baguette.
