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.
Grilled Tomato Margarita
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!

The classic whiskey smash calls for bourbon, mint, lemon, and sweetener. Give your next cocktail a fresh taste of summer by tossing in grilled peaches before you muddle everything together.
