Throw another pineapple on the barbie!
It's time to fire up the grill for a backyard barbecue! Summer is here and we’ve got some vegetable dishes starring tomatoes, melons, eggplant, cucumber and capsicum that will be the talking point at your barbecue.
You can grill a watermelon?
Combine the freshness of watermelon and the fun of a barbecue by grilling watermelon slices. It’s so simple – just cut thick slices, season with olive oil and throw them on the barbecue for a couple of minutes. Watermelon is also a delicious addition to a simple salad with mixed lettuce leaves and feta, served as a side for grilled fish.
Striking salads on a stick
Create the most colourful and nutritious kebabs with your favourite vegetables. Our picks are cherry tomatoes, capsicum, eggplant, mushroom, zucchini, onion, asparagus and squash for a pop of brightness. Marinate the vegetables with olive oil and herbs of your choice and after a few minutes on the barbecue, they will have a delightful grilled flavour.
Or perhaps you’d like a cold kebab starter? Check out our mini caprese salad on a stick. Don’t forget to soak your wooden skewers first so they don’t splinter.
The perfect accompaniment to any barbecue meat is definitely the topping. Our Brazilian tomato salsa featuring lime juice with a punch of chilli will be a hit with your guests and the best part – it only involves a bit of cutting and a good stir.
Cool down with cucumber
Cucumber is made for outdoor dishes. A bowl of fresh slices is delicious on its own (it’s like a bowl of healthy chips!), or infuse some cucumber in water for a refreshing drink. For some spicy inspiration, try this cucumber salsa.
