Mendelsohn-Labor Day Grilling Party-Photo2


Start with your salad: you can make a basic Caesar salad taste anything but ordinary by grilling your romaine hearts. Or you can make a salad by tossing your greens with some fresh grilled veggies ranging from bell peppers to onions to zucchini and everything in between. We love this recipe, which combines barley with grilled mushrooms, zucchini, asparagus and onions into a yummy salad that just tastes like summer. Oh, and the best part is you can make the veggies ahead of time, so when meal-time rolls around, all you need to do is assemble and eat.

If you love pizza, why not make a healthier and season-appropriate version on the grill? This flatbread recipe offers just the right amount of crunch without tasting too heavy or greasy. And the char-marks from your grill make the crust look extra appealing.
