Citrusy Bean-Topped Bruschetta

Citrusy Bean-Topped Bruschetta Get more mileage out of this party appetizer when you reserve some of the marinated bean-and-veggie topping. After the party, reprise the mixture with the main-dish Greek-Style Bean Salad.


Greek-Style Bean Salad Salad dressing is provided, compliments of the orange vinaigrette marinade on the beans. Drain the beans first, reserving the marinade for the dressing.


Barbecued Chicken with Roasted-Onion Medley The foil-wrapped, savory onion medley grills alongside the chicken in this meal on the grill.


Barbecued Chicken, Roasted Onion, and Nectarine Pizza Yes, you can whip up an after-work homemade pizza. Prepare the sauce, onion medley, and chicken up to 3 days ahead, then stop by the market for a pizza crust and shredded cheese. At home, assemble the pizza. Slice on some summer-ripe fruit for a touch of sweetness.


Chipotle-Lime Marinated Flank Steak For grilled-beef lovers who like spunk in their steak, the south-of-the-border flavors in the marinade and salsa will deliver.

Thai Tuna Salad Grilled tuna brings delicate smoked flavor to this main-dish salad.


Market Tuna-Salad Sandwiches Dress up purchased mayonnaise with a little lemon and garlic, slather it on crusty bread, and top with the tuna mixture from last night's Thai Tuna Salad.


Tangy Apricot Barbecue Sauce This fruity condiment pulls double duty as a brush-on sauce for barbecued chicken and as a tomato sauce stand-in for pizza.

Siesta Rolls Two kinds of peppers -- sweet red peppers and spicy poblano chiles -- combine for just the right "warmth" in the filling, but you may adjust the ratio to your own taste. For another twist, try vegetable-flavor tortillas in place of the plain variety.
