Summer grilling ideas: stuffed jalapeños, pizza, fish & veggies

Ah, summer… A time for pool parties, vacations and grilling!!

Not only is grilling fun to enjoy with friends and family, it’s also one of the healthiest ways of preparing food! Fat drains off, and you rarely add any oils to grilled foods. Just clean fresh vegetables and proteins. And the best part is, you can make appetizers, snacks and entrees on the grill.
