Today's recipes are a collection of simple and basic ideas using fresh fruits and vegetables on the grill! Each recipe only calls for 3 or 4 ingredients, making them both easy and inexpensive! Trying these recipes or ones like them will help to make your family's summer diet light and delicious!

Savory Grilled Pineapple

You will need:

  • 1 fresh pineapple - peeled, cored and cut into 1 inch rings
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • Salt to taste

Recipe Steps:

  1. Place pineapple rings into a large resealable plastic bag. Add honey, butter and salt and seal the bag.
  2. Shake the bag/pineapple to coat evenly. Marinate for at least 30 minutes or overnight in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
  4. Grill pineapple rings for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until heated through and grill marks appear.

*Grilled pineapple goes perfectly with BBQ'd shrimp and chicken!

Tangy Grilled Zucchini

You will need:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 zucchinis, sliced 1/4-inch thick, lengthwise
  • Sea salt
  • Balsamic vinegar

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Drizzle zucchini slices on both sides with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Grill zucchinis on preheated grill until tender, approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Serve with ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.

Sweet Grilled Peaches

You will need:

  • 3 fresh peaches, sliced or 1 (16 ounce) package frozen peach slices (either can be used)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat a grill for medium heat.
  2. Place peaches onto a large piece of aluminum foil, facing upward. Use two pieces of foil if necessary to hold in all of the peaches without spillage. Drizzle the honey over the peaches, and sprinkle with cinnamon. Close up the foil, sealing tightly.
  3. Place the foil packet onto the preheated grill, and cook for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through.

Serve with a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
