OMG, I needed this post a week ago. I grilled for the first time while on Nantucket last week. I felt pretty clueless, so I kept things simple with steak and vegetable kabobs. My building has grills in the courtyard, but I’ve always been too intimidated to try it on my own. I’m feeling inspired now though.
8 Recipes to Grill This Summer
Guest post by Louisa from Living Lou
Grilling is without a doubt the best way to cook in the summer, whether you’re using a gas barbecue or a charcoal grill, this method of cooking adds so much flavor to everything.

People are often intimidated by grilling fish, but throwing fish on a skewer with zucchini, peppers, and onion couldn’t be easier.
I grew up spending my summers in Greece (my grandparents live there), so this chicken souvlaki is 100% authentic, it tastes just like the real thing! Plus the ingredients list couldn’t be more simple.
Not only are these sweet potato wedges delicious, but with the grill marks they are also beautiful (and impressive!).
Yes, I love to cook Greek food! Have you ever grilled chicken wings before? The flavors are completely different from fried or baked wings, and it has become my favorite way to eat chicken wings.

Turkey burgers don’t have the best reputation, but these burgers with just five ingredients are one of my favorites to make in the summer, I might even prefer them to beef!
Charring corn on the barbecue gives a complex sweet and smoky flavor to this salad. I’ve paired the sweet corn with my favorite earthy grain of the moment, farro.
