Pineapple is also very good grilled. The grilling causes it to shrink a little and that concentrates the flavor.

One of my favorites is grilled mushrooms on a skewer. After skewering them I spray or brush them with olive oil a few times (because it soaks in) and then sprinkle them with a dry rub (usually the same one I used on the meat I'm grilling). The grilling makes them shrink a little and they are really moist and good.

My husband is the griller in the family...I discover recipes and do the prep .. we've decided to try a new grilling recipe each month...we tried 1 new one each year in the past...Beer can chicken-deliciously moist.....grilled pizza yum (put the cheese over the sauce not over the toppings!) jalapeno stuffed with cream cheese (wear protective gloves when you're seeding the peppers).

I do a mix of grilled veggies (onions, mushrooms, zucchini, grape\cherry tomatoes, asparagus, sliced baby carrots, red\green peppers....) ut it all up tossed with a little olive oil so they don't stick.
I cook them on a grill topper so they don't fall through.
Once done, they go into a large bowl and I drizzle a store brand salad dressing mix, made with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, over top and toss. serve and eat....

I haven't tried to grill fruits, but it sounds delicious. I use a grill pan for veggies if I'm not making kabobs. Will definitely try some of the tips.

I have fallen in love with grilled fruits! It is such a healthy way to get my sweet fix.

The photo with this article makes my mouth water; although in reality my kabobs would have much, much less meat; not because I would not love to have more but it simply costs too much these days! I hope to have this at least once this summer...

I love marinated baked/grilled foods. This is a good time to incorporate into my diet.

I love grilling and I love cabbage - naturally reading that both could be combined is super- interesting for me. Does anyone know how it works? Without burning the leaves? Please send me a message if you know how to do it...

I love, love, love grilling. I just bought "The vegetarain grill" and recommend it for veggies and non-vegetarians alike. :)

My favorite thing to grill is asparagus, with a little fresh lemon juice. Yum.
