8 Easy Late Summer Dinners on the Grill

We’ve been grilling a lot this summer. For the most part the meals have been really simple so I haven’t been typing them up for individual posts. Instead I’ve been recording them to share with you all at once. Most of the them are so basic they don’t require recipes and can be thrown together with ease. Please share what you’ve been grilling in the comments so we can swap ideas and enjoy the last few weeks of grilling season together!

10 Easy Summer Dinners on the Grill | The Naptime Chef

Grilled Lamb Kebobs: Marinate lamb chunks in lemon, olive oil, and garlic. Place them on a skewer with chunks of pepper and onion and grill. IMG_7005

Citrus Grilled Shrimp with Salad: This simple citrus marinade is from my first cookbook, The Naptime Chef, and it is still a big favorite. I marinate the shrimp during naptime and grill them up in the evening. IMG_7010

Grilled Shrimp with Gazpacho: Make the gazpacho during the day and eat it with last night’s grilled shrimp for lunch!

Steak Chimichurri: Another favorite from The Naptime Chef, a grilled steak with a simple chimichurri is perfect. Serve them with tortillas to make tacos! This is a steak chimichurri we had at a friend’s house.

Lemon Chicken Kebobs | The Naptime Chef

Lemon Rosemary Chicken Kebobs: These easy chicken kebobs are perfect for everyday grilling. The recipe is in my new book, The Family Calendar Cookbook. Marinate the chicken during the day and grill it up for dinner!

Grilled Peppers | The Naptime Chef

Grilled Soy Ginger Peppers: This one of my favorite grilled vegetable dishes. We just marinate the peppers in a soy ginger salad dressing and grill them in a grill basket until softened and charred.

Coffee Rubbed Steak

Quick Coffee Rubbed Steak is a perennial favorite!

Grilled Asparagus

Grilled Parmesan Asparagus has been our favorite go-to grilled vegetable this summer. Sometimes I just top it with an egg and call it dinner.
