We've rounded up a few of our favorite and non-traditional grilling foods.

For example, have you ever thought of grilling cheese? Not cheese sprinkled on top of bread, but actual cheese. It's entirely possible, surprisingly easy, and doesn't turn into a gooey mess, but soft and chewy instead. Choose thick slices of halloumi or cheese wheels with a thick rind.

Grilled vegetables are another underappreciated grilling gem. One of the best is lettuce, which can enhance any summer salad. Try using a head of Romaine lettuce or butter lettuce that has been cut in half and brushed with olive oil. It chars in minutes and is simply irresistible drizzled with ranch or buttermilk dressing.

Use this optimal warm weather to dust off the grill and try something new. In addition to this list, there are plenty of other deliciously grilled foods. Roam the produce aisle and see what you can find, but be sure to see our picks first!
