Beef Kebabs with Cucumber-Mint Salad
The beauty of the melting pot that is American cuisine is that we are surrounded by opportunities to taste dishes from all over the world. Basically a hamburger on a stick, these kebabs cook faster and have more surface contact with the grill, resulting in more crispy, juicy bites than your average bun-topped burger. The assertively spiced beef is perfectly balanced by the cooling cucumber salad, which gets even better with an extra dollop of creamy low-fat Greek yogurt.

Sautéed Striped Bass with Lemon and Herb Sauce
If you find sea bass to be strong-flavored, remove the pan drippings from the skillet before making the sauce for a milder final product. The wine-butter sauce is a good complement to the dish, especially with caramelized lemon notes.

Grilled Lamb and Feta Pita Sandwiches
Your favorite Mediterranean takeout just got a wholesome makeover. We mixed in lean ground sirloin with the lamb for a lighter patty; lemon and cumin keep the flavor bright and bold. Be sure to let the cucumber dry before stirring it into the yogurt to keep the sauce nice and creamy. Double up on this easy recipe, set out a bowl of your favorite hummus with veggies, and your next backyard party is ready to go.

Grilled General Tso's Chicken
This fun twist on barbecue chicken borrows flavors from a Chinese takeout favorite. We grill the chicken without any of the glazy sauce brushed on because you would lose all subtlety in the sauce if it were to char on the grill. The sauce gets its translucent sheen from neutral-flavored light corn syrup (not to be confused with high fructose corn syrup); you could substitute honey, brown rice syrup, or Lyle’s Golden Syrup—just know that the sauce will be a darker color and will take on the flavor of the sweetener.

Grilled Steak Salad with Green Tomato Vinaigrette
You can swap out your favorite garden tomatoes for the heirlooms in this tomato-centric salad, but don’t replace the green tomato. Some tomato selections (like Green Zebra) ripen to a lovely shade of green, but this dressing calls for a not-yet-ripened red tomato. Its tart flavor is key to the vinaigrette, which tastes great with any grilled meat or vegetable.
