Summer staples like peaches (grilled, of course!) and green beans take center stage in this healthy chicken dinner. For more protein and fiber, try quinoa instead of orzo.

Strawberry S'mores Cobbler

To make this mashup dessert on the grill, assemble the fruit, graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows in a cast-iron skillet or foil baking pan. Heat until marshmallows are browned and toasty.

Yes, tomatoes are a fruit! Get a few of the cheery yellow cherry-size variety nice and charred to use as garnish in this citrusy tequila cocktail. The smoky-sweet combo is tough to beat!
