Grilled Vegetables with Summer Hollandaise
Grilling asparagus and Broccolini over dry heat concentrates their sweetness and adds a delectable smoky flavor. Making the sauce in a blender means there's no fear of it separating.
Grilled Zucchini with Mozzarella and Dill
A summer veggie, cooked in the summer way: on a grill! Lemon juice, crushed red pepper and fresh dill add more punch to the zucchini.
Grilled Asparagus with Minty Lemon and Walnut Crumbs
Dress up grilled asparagus with this crispy crumb mixture, sort of a savory streusel made with panko, walnuts, lemon zest and mint. The combo is especially good alongside pork or chicken.
Grilled Tomato Melts
Gooey Monterey Jack cheese bubbles inside fresh tomatoes, while chopped sweet peppers and toasted sliced almonds add crunch.
Vegging Out Grilled Mushrooms
Smoky cheese holds grilled eggplant, onions and pepper together, and portobellos form "bread" for this hefty meatless sandwich.
Grilled Green Beans with Shallots
Wrapped in a foil packet, fresh green beans--seasoned with onion, soy sauce, basil, mint, sesame seeds and your choice of nuts--grill alongside your entree.
Grilled Green Tomatoes with Garden Herb Salad
This recipe is perfect just before the beginning of tomato season and just as it ends. Grilling the tomatoes gives them a smokiness that complements their natural tanginess.
Grilled Asparagus & Arugula Salad with Shaved Parmesan
Warm asparagus wilts the peppery arugula and melds all the flavors in this grilled salad. Use Parmigiano-Reggiano from Italy and fresh squeezed lemon juice for the best flavor.
Grilled Potato Packets
Slice russet potatoes and combine with sweet peppers, onion and fresh parsley for Grilled Potato Packets. Foil packets trap steam that cooks the potatoes.
Grilled Sweet Onions
Onions wrapped in foil steam to juicy perfection when cooked on your grill. The recipe comes from a Naperville, Illinois, reader, who says the onions turn out tender and sweet.
Veggie Bread Salad
Quarter red, yellow or green sweet peppers; remove stems, seeds and membranes. Thread small tomatoes on skewers. Slice Italian bread. Brush all with olive oil. Place on grill rack over medium coals. Grill peppers 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and browned; grill tomato skewers and bread slices 2 minutes or until tomatoes are softened and bread is toasted, turning all once during grilling. Cut peppers into bite-size pieces and bread into cubes. Toss veggies and bread with torn romaine, some Parmesan cheese and Italian dressing.
Fire-Roasted Dilled Potato Medley
Make this colorful potato medley with yellow-fleshed potatoes, carrots and onions. Roasting-pan cooking gives grilled potatoes a rich, nutty flavor.
Grilled Squash and More
Brush Italian dressing on squash, onion and mushrooms for a zesty herbed-vinegar coating.
Pesto Rosemary Skewered Baby Potatoes and Carrots
Veggie kabobs are a fun way to serve summer vegetables. Rosemary makes a fancy skewer for baby potatoes and carrots, but you can use metal or wooden skewers, if you prefer.
In our picture, veggie kabobs are on the left and center of platter. To the right of the veggies is a skewer of Grilled Pork Tenderloin Spiedini, an oregano-and fennel-marinated main dish. (Spiedini is Italian for skewers.)
