a good dessert to pair up with your grilled feast is fruit cubes :) You can just simply freeze fruits such as grapes, berries and voila, a guiltless, summery and healthy dessert :)

Thanks for the good wishes! I am feeling better, and ended up making it to my evening cookout. It was full of surprisingly healthy options! My contribution was a salad of corn, red pepper, peas (I wanted shelled edamame instead, but didn't have any), and avocado, with salt, dill, and lime juice.

Hope you feel better, soon!

We're dealing with ridiculous heat, so we're enjoying "cool" foods, like salads and shrimp cocktail, and easy light foods like steamed crab, risotto with asparagus and grilled veggies.

I planned to make golden watermelon sorbet, but the store sold out of the melons. So, maybe it will be pink, lol!

Get better quick!
This is a salad we had last night (with scallop) but it would work well with any BBQ meats.
Slice one 6" zucchini into sliver thin rounds. Sliver half a red or orange sweet pepper, one-eighth of a red onion. Soak 2-3 tbsp of dried goji berries until soft, add to the veggies in a bowl. Toss with 1 tbsp lemon zest, 2 tsp lemon juice and 1 tbsp olive oil. It was cool and very tasty...MJ

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! Who's got a yummy recipe for a summer cookout? Who has found a healthy, tasty treat during their tour of the BBQ circuit this weekend? Let me live vicariously through you--I'm sick in bed and missing the first of my three cookouts scheduled for the weekend.
