Grilling Inspiration

Francesco Tonelli for The New York Times
Seems like I've grilled everything except butter and ice cream and about now I could use some inspiration.  
Mark Bittman, known as "The Minimalist" has 101 Fast Recipes For Grilling.  In these brief and easy recipes, Mark covers fruit, vegetables, bread, tofu, meat, fowl and fish.  How about a grilled salad or grilled guacamole?  Here's are some examples:

21. Waldorf salad revisited, sort of: Grill cut apples until browned but not mushy; grill chunks of Napa or savoy cabbage, also left crisp; grill halved red onion. Chop or shred all together with blue cheese, walnuts and a little yogurt.
37. Moist grilled chicken breast? Yes: Pound chicken breast thin, top with chopped tomato, basil and Parmesan; roll and skewer and grill over not-high heat until just done.

Enjoy your weekend.  

I'm taking our puppy, Sydney, on a Paw Walk to raise funds for a dog park.  Some other fun stuff too. See you on Monday.
