Grilling Recipes To Kick Off Summer

It’s OFFICIALLY Grilling season!

We grill year-round in my house, but even more so during the warmer months when we can hang out on the patio and enjoy our delicious meal with our favorite people.

Whether using the outdoor grill or preparing the food inside, there are endless recipes to make and kick off summer. Here are just 20 of my favorites!

1. Rachel’s Fiesta Lime Grilled Chicken

This is one of our all-time favorite ways to enjoy grilled chicken! It’s perfectly marinated and generously seasoned to create a crisp outside with a moist, juicy inside. Dripping with tangy-limey avocado salsa and hot off the grill!

2. Grilled Pineapple with Ricotta + Honey

Grilled Pineapple with Ricotta + Honey

Pineapple is a classic summer fruit and is perfect for staying hydrated. With this recipe, you’ll quickly have a tasty, fun, sweet summer treat for everyone to enjoy.

3.  Grilled Bok Choy

Bok Choy is tender, sweet, and stands up well to heat — making it an EXCELLENT choice for grilling. Absolute perfection served with coconut aminos (soy sauce type flavor but slightly less salty) and freshly toasted sesame seeds.

4. Fajita Steak Skewers

6. Grilled Watermelon Blue Cheese Salad

Here’s another incredibly hydrating summer fruit for you! In addition to their water content, watermelons are also a surprisingly nutrient-dense food.

They provide high levels of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all within just a few calories.


7. Grilled Chicken Skewers + Homemade Tzatziki

The tzatziki sauce perfectly compliments the grilled chicken here! You could pair that dip with several recipes on this list, and everyone will be happy.

After you make this, I’m sure it’ll become a staple in your house for the next few months!  

8. Grilled Summer Veggies

Eating veggies is vital for a whole, clean diet, and it can be challenging to come up with new ways to serve them.

If you’re struggling, definitely save this recipe and get grilling! Those caramelized, dark-browned crispy edges are an edible crispy delight.

9. Flavorful Marinated Mushroom Kabobs

These mushroom kabobs are quick and easy to make and are fantastic for weekend get-togethers or parties.

Plus, mushrooms contain nutrients like selenium, vitamin D, and vitamin B6 that help maintain a healthy immune system. They’re also a natural anti-inflammatory that can help fight inflammation.

10. Grilled Chicken Skewers Meal Prep

This chicken marinade for these chicken skewers is absolutely phenomenal! It’s so good you’ll want to make these babies all summer long!

They’re great for Meal Prep, so if you have a busy week ahead, try these to save future-you time.

11. Grilled Juicy Ginger-Lemon Chicken

Here’s a perfect grilled chicken recipe for you to add to the weekly menu. They’re so moist and flavorful, thanks to the overnight marinating.

I suggest doubling the recipe so you have extra grilled chicken for future meals; it’s excellent thrown on a salad the next day.

12. Grilled Salmon + Avocado Salsa

Not only is this recipe delicious, but it’s full of health benefits! Wild-caught salmon has several vitamins, minerals, and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Also, avocados boost vitamins and minerals and are rich in folate, fiber, monounsaturated fats, and vitamin E.

13. Grilled Shrimp + Pineapple Kabobs

14. Grilled Garlic Chicken + Summer Veggies

Moist, juicy, flavorful chicken breasts + perfectly grilled veggies = the all-time best summer meal!

It’s also a fantastic prep-ahead option! Simply dish equal portions into your food prep containers, then refrigerate for up to 4 days.

15. Pork Skewers with Tzatziki Sauce

If you’re a pork fan, then you’ll definitely want to save this one. It’s BURSTING with delicious flavors and is great for any party or get-together you have coming up!

16. Grilled Veggie Cauliflower Crust Pizza

Using cauliflower to make the pizza crust is a wonderful way to enjoy a tasty comfort meal without consuming as many carbs. And as a bonus, eggplants are an excellent source of fiber and nutrients.

Mixing them with other grilled veggies makes a delicious pizza!

17. Fresh Grilled Zucchini with Chimichurri
