Have you ever considered grilled watermelon kebabs? It might seem a little wrong, but we promise when your grill adds some smoky flavor to the ultimate summer fruit you'll become a believer.

Not many people realize how delicious whole artichokes are, but they might make them dietary staples if they cooked them on the grill. Grilled artichokes are tender with crispy edges, and can be served with melted butter or aioli sauce.
Grilled lettuce? What? Yes! Thowing crisp romaine leaves on the grill just long enough for grill marks to appear will take your summer salads to a whole new level. You'll never want cold, raw lettuce again.
5. Lemon Kebabs
Grilled kebabs are a summer staple, but have you ever tried adding lemon wedges in place of pineapple? The citrus flavor will create a whole new taste experience that everyone at your backyard shindig will be dying to replicate.
Grilled asparagus is so much better than baked or pan-seared asparagus. The smoky flavor of the grill perfectly compliments the asparagus and olive oil combination.
A new take on apples - grill them as either a side or dessert. You can marinate and grill apples to accompany pork or chicken, or you can grill cinnamon and brown sugar glazed apples for dessert. Either way you have a winner.
Grilled peaches basically taste like summer time. Halve some peaches, brush with butter, and grill until marks show up. Like apples, they can serve as a compliment to your main dish, or as dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Grilled avocados make an excellent meal base. Brush with lemon or lime juice, and grill for 2-3 minutes. You can then fill the middle whatever you want, like pico, salsa, or feta cheese. Voilà! You have a light and decadent summer dinner.
I know that grilling grapes sounds absurd, but they're seriously amazing. Both red and green grapes can be grilled and added to appetizers and desserts. Grill grapes for 30 seconds on one side and 30 seconds on the other, then enjoy.
