Grilled Romaine Lettuce

Restaurants are selling this dish for much more than it costs to make at home. And it’s so simple to do! Don’t be afraid that the heat will wilt the lettuce; it’s hearty enough to take it. The grill marks add to the visual appeal, so be sure to leave the lettuce on the hot grates long enough to get a little char.

Greek Watermelon Salad

Sweet and savory save the day again, as watermelon and mint share the spotlight with kalamata olives and feta cheese. This low-cal side dish goes as beautifully with grilled fish as it does with grilled cheese. It’s the flavor of everything wonderful about summer.
