Grilling during the summer barbecue season is a great way to explore unique and unlikely foods. Here are a few unusual foods you can try grilling this summer:
Cut thick slices of watermelon and grill them briefly to caramelize the sugars and add a smoky flavor. Serve with a sprinkle of salt, lime juice, and fresh mint.
Cut ripe avocados in half, remove the pit, and grill them face down until they develop grill marks. Drizzle with a mixture of lime juice, olive oil, and salt for a delicious and creamy treat.
Slice a head of romaine lettuce in half lengthwise, brush with olive oil, and grill until slightly charred. Top with Caesar dressing, croutons, and Parmesan cheese for a grilled salad twist.
Grill thick slices of pineapple until caramelized and slightly charred. Serve them as a sweet and tangy side dish or as a topping for grilled meats.
Halloumi is a firm and salty cheese that holds its shape when grilled. Cut it into slices and grill until golden brown on each side. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice for a delightful appetizer.
Halve peaches and remove the pit. Grill them cut-side down until they develop grill marks and become tender. Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey for a fantastic dessert.
: Slice a whole head of cauliflower into thick slabs to create "steaks." Brush them with olive oil and season with your favorite spices before grilling. Serve as a vegetarian main course or as a unique side dish.
Halve fresh figs and grill them briefly until they become soft and slightly caramelized. Top with goat cheese, drizzle with honey, and garnish with crushed pistachios for an elegant appetizer.
Choose a hearty bread like ciabatta or sourdough and grill it until lightly toasted. Serve as a base for bruschetta, as a side with grilled meats, or simply spread with butter or olive oil.
Grilled Pound Cake:
Slice store-bought or homemade pound cake into thick slices and grill until grill marks appear. Serve with fresh berries, whipped cream, or a scoop of ice cream for a delightful dessert.
