Best Grilling Recipes for Summer Outdoor Entertaining

Summer’s here! It’s time to break out the grill and invite the neighbors over for a BBQ to show off your new outdoor living space.

Want some new ideas on what to make for your outdoor get-togethers, instead of the usual hot dogs and burgers

We’ve got you covered! Here are some of the best grilling recipes you may have never thought of!

Margarita Chicken

If summer’s not summer without a margarita in hand, give this Margarita Chicken recipe a try. Marinated in garlic and lime juice, these tangy chicken breasts are a crowd-pleaser! Make it a fiesta by serving it up in tacos with some cilantro lime rice and guacamole.

BBQ Style Grilled Portobello Caps

Yes, you heard that right! Move over meat, these BBQ Portobello Mushrooms are a scrumptious, healthier, option with all the meaty flavor!

Marinate the mushrooms in a spicy sauce then serve them on a bun with some coleslaw or over quinoa or pasta.

You can also grill some flatbread for one minute on each side. These make excellent pockets for mushrooms and other fillings.

However you serve them, your guests will be back for seconds!

Grilled Eggplant Salad

Want something a little lighter in between burgers and steaks? Grilled eggplant salad is easy to make while staying cool under your patio cover. You’ll need eggplants, freekeh, mint, dill, Italian parsley, scallions, and lemons — all the flavors of summer!

Cook the freekeh by boiling for 20 minutes. In the meantime, brush eggplant slices with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and grill for a few minutes on each side.

Toss the freekeh with all the herbs, as well as lemon zest and juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Mix together Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, minced garlic, and salt. Scoop onto a plate and put the salad on top, with the eggplant sliced into bite-sized pieces.

Grilled Avocados

Yes, you can grill avocado! Grilled, stuffed avocados are at home as either a side dish or the main entree — depending on how much you stuff them!

These Grilled Avocados Stuffed with Corn and Black Bean Salsa are nutritious and delicious!
