Vegetables don’t get much love in grill season because the focus is on heartier things like steaks and burgers — or because cooking veggies on a grill can be a pain. Well, I say phooey to all that! These fajitas are not just worthy of much more attention because they are so good, but using a grill basket totally eliminates the pain.
To me there’s just something magical about making your own dill pickles and other veggies. And whether you’re making them to go in a Bloody Mary, a Cuban sandwich or just on a platter to eat as they are – you will not be sorry you did this.
The weather changes and so should the appetizers. These are light and perfect for the warm weather.
Think of this as the regular shrimp cocktail’s fresher, healthier, and lighter cousin.
There’s a real satisfaction in making certain foods yourself – and the frozen treat world is a perfect example. I don’t want to get geeky on you, but watching milk, cream, berries etc. turn into cream right before your eyes is kind of unbelievable. And while there’s nothing magical about ice being crushed – there is something magical about enjoying a snow cone on a hot summer day. And whether you have kids or are a kid – these are for everyone.
