There are few things in life this family of mine likes more than grilled pineapple. You can slice it up and grill it as-is if you'd like, but we like to marinate it for that little extra something. It's so easy it doesn't actually need a recipe but...here you go.
Marinated Grilled Pineapple
1 pineapple, sliced into spears
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons lime juice
Place all ingredients in a plastic bag, mush around, let marinate overnight (or for a few hours, at least).
Grill and devour.
None of us are huge on veggies but we actually kind of love them marinated and grilled. Even my boys appreciate a veggie skewer with sweet bell peppers on it! It's a great (and healthy!) way to add some pretty summer colors to a meal!
Marinated Grilled Veggie Skewers
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp basil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
Skewers, soaked in water
Chop veggies into bite-sized pieces. Mix together first five ingredients, pour into a gallon ziplock and add veggies. Seal then squish around to distribute. Refrigerate and let marinate for at least 4 hours. Thread onto soaked skewers and grill until there's a nice bit of char and veggies are a little tender.
We like to use assorted bell peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, and onions. You could also do mushrooms, tomatoes, or whatever else your family loves!
