The summer is made for grilling, and lots of it. With Memorial Day weekend just behind us, we can finally get excited about sinking into grilling season. By that we mean eating every possible meal off the grill. We're not talking about eating hamburgers and hot dogs all summer long -- though those are great too -- but bringing just about every dish we make inside the kitchen to the great outdoors.

In case you didn't know, you can make almost anything on the grill. Salads taste way better when grilled first. Steaks, lamb chops and fish make so much more sense on the grill. And desserts get a little more interesting when charred. If you don't own a grill, now just might be the right time to invest.
