Summer Grilling Menu : Tomato, Goat Cheese & Corn, Grilled Romaine Salad, and Grilled Pesto Shrimp
Today, I had a little fun and prepared the freshest, most flavorful, non-traditional grilled menu. We just set up our grill last week and after making one round of burgers, I was ready to dive into new ideas for the grilling.
I started with this appetizer that is a slice of tomato topped with goat cheese and grilled. During the grilling process, it is drizzled with a lemon garlic olive oil. After the grill, it is topped with fresh basil and fresh sweet corn kernels. I LOVED this... would've been great with some crusty bread. On the grill, of course.
I recently tried a grilled salad at one of our favorite restaurants and had to try to recreate it. I brushed mine with an olive oil, lemon, garlic and rosemary mixture, then topped it with tons of Parmesan cheese.
And finally, my favorite grilled dinner - herb shrimp with pasta tossed in a fresh pesto sauce.
I'll post all of the recipes later this week!
