Load up your grill with vegetables, fruits and even salad. Let these healthier barbecue recipes inspire you to make dinner (and dessert) outside this summer.
Applesauce is rewarding to make at home for its better, fresher taste, and compared to store-bought, it’s entirely free of added sugars and preservatives. Strawberries give a tangy bite and pretty pink hue and take advantage of the extra-flavorful, first-of-the-season fruit.
Stone fruits like peaches are great for grilling – they’re meaty enough to hold up to the heat and the sugars caramelize beautifully on the grates. Most dulce de leche recipes use dairy, but ours uses full-fat coconut milk instead.
The “meat” of this summery salad is the grilled halloumi, a salty Cypriot cheese most often made from sheep’s and goat’s milk. Because it’s semi-hard with a high melting point, it’s great for grilling. If you’d rather cook it indoors, use a well-seasoned cast iron pan to get the best sear.
