Best Grilling Recipes for Summer
FRUIT & VEGETABLES
In most cases fruit can be treated like vegetables in terms of grilling, typically just with a shorter cooking time. Watermelon is a great fruit to grill because you can cut thick slices and the flesh is firm, even when it’s ripe.

This watermelon is an explosion of sweet and spicy and is the perfect compliment to any grilled meat or vegetable.
2. Marinated Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Packed with mouth-watering Asian flavors, these mushrooms are a fantastic side and will make your vegan and vegetarian guests very happy.
3. Grilled Green Onions
Also called Scallions, these onions are incredibly delicious and the perfect spring or summer side dish. It’s so easy to throw a handful of green onions on the grill next to the main course. They only take a couple of minutes to cook, and they’ll brighten any plate.

With just a few ingredients and big delicious flavors, this is another one that’s easy to prepare and throw on the grill alongside your main course for outdoor spring and summer meals.
