I love it when my husband makes grilled corn on the cob. He brushes it lightly with olive oil, sprinkles with sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and garlic powder, then wraps in foil. Throw it on the grill while meat is cooking, and it is the perfect summer veggie!

I add fresh cilantro and basil to my green salads for a different taste. I find that the same salad over and over can become boring… Depending on how much of each is added you don’t really need much dressing at all if any due to the strong flavors in herbs.
My go to salad has become, romaine lettuce, black beans, grilled corn, basil, cilantro, BBQ chicken (that has a small amount of BBQ sauce), mozzarella cheese and homemade tortilla chips.
On the Holiday Grill Veggies to help your diet...SO VERY EASY
Grill up some veggies....Eggplant is especially good. When grill is hot, slice eggplant about 1/2-inch thick. Whisk together olive oil / vinegar, garlic,herbs, pepper. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices with the oil & vinegar mixture. Grill 20 minutes. Or how about grilled Brocolli w/lemon, or Zucchini, squash, asparagus, peppers, or mushrooms drizzled w/olive oil..make Vegetable Kebabs~marinate oil and vinegar mixture for 15 minutes, then grill for 12 minutes. Try foil packets.
If you making vegetable kabobs, choose vegetables that have the same cooking time. Baby tomatoes grill much quicker than sliced carrots. Other choices are tomatoes, onion, asparagus, potatoes, sweet corn. Just watch the carbs. NOTHING COMPLICATED ABOUT GRILLED VEGGIES. Grilled Vegetable are EASY!!!
