A Kid Spin On Salads
Grilled Veggie Pasta Salad
Consider this recipe a template for whatever veggies you have in the fridge that the kids will eat: Four cups of cooked pasta and 3 cups of veggies tossed in a light vinaigrette. It's a perfect meal every time.
Pizza in A Bowl
It's a traditional Caprese salad--with grilled croutons for a kid-friendly touch. But when you put pizza in the name, little ears perk up.
Steak & Cucumber "Noodle" Toss
Kids will slurp up the long cucumber strips like spaghetti. To keep the steak juicy on the grill, make shallow diagonal cuts on both sides of the beef in a diamond pattern.
Orange & Apricot Glazed Chicken Cups
Fruit-flavored chicken (reminiscent of sweet & sour takeout) gets tucked inside a grilled lettuce bowl. Yep, you can grill heartier lettuce varieties like romaine, for a sweeter, smokier flavor that the kids will probably prefer to the ordinary leaf.
5-Minute Grilled Desserts
After you're done with your meal, make a fruity family treat in five minutes on the grill.
