Zucchini and corn season has returned! What ever are we to do?

Lettuce grill them! <- Get it? I’m a riot on Mondays.

…and while we’re at it, lettuce grill up some beets and cook up some quinoa and make a whole thing of it!

I know what you’re thinking: grilled beets? What a mind blow. Lemme ‘splain:

Recently, Love Beets and I put our heads together to bring you six beet-infused recipes for grilling season. In case you’re unfamiliar with Love Beets, they sell packaged organic cooked beets, which are available in the produce section of your grocery store. Boom! Beets year-round! Since the beets are already cooked, they only take a split second on the grill to get nice and charred with flavor.

I used my steezy grill to whip out this super fresh grilled vegetable quinoa salad. I tossed it all together in a zesty lime dressing and served it up with cotija cheese.

Feta or goat cheese would be amazing on this dang thing, too! It’s a healthful and shareable salad, perfect for your summer gatherings and suuuuper quick and easy to make.

    I swear, if anyone knows how to make beets look sexy, it’s you! I love this combo and I may have seen it before and got ridiculously excited. 😉

    And I’m so jealous of your lake time. Gah, I want that so bad right now! I’m coming to visit you soon, mark my words. I need to see that video too. That ant sounds like an awesome little dude! Whenever I feel overwhelmed I always remind myself to work like an ant. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish by taking little steps each day. 🙂
