Nothing beats the flavor of grilled vegetables, and this is a super way to use your garden bounty. I grill the veggies anytime I'm grilling something else, then whip up the salad and put it in the fridge to marinate. It's even better the next day.
In Mexico, grilled corn sometimes comes slathered in mayonnaise, rolled in grated cheese and served with lime and chili powder. This is my family’s take on the dish, with our own flavor enhancements.—Carolyn Kumpe, El Dorado, California
These hearty, meat-and-potato skewers have a little something to please everyone, from pineapple to pork. I cook these kabobs even in winter; I just shovel a path to the grill. —Dione Steffens, Dimmitt, Texas
This side dish is our favorite way to fix summer vegetables. Cleanup is a breeze because it cooks in foil. It goes from garden to table in under an hour, and makes a great accompaniment to grilled steak or chicken. — Lori Daniels, Beverly, West Virginia
My interests are reading, gardening...and growing most of the ingredients I use in this dinner!
There's something for every taste in this recipe. It would be great as a meal-in-one dish for a picnic or a reunion.
My husband is a farmer, growing mostly grain. We have a daughter and a son, 14 and 13. All three of them became "fans" of this meal from the start!
A perfect warm-weather salad, this colorful dish is especially tasty when sweet corn, tomatoes, and zucchini are in season. The garden-fresh ingredients are lightly dressed in mild basil vinegar and oil, plus a blend of other herbs and seasonings. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
