Grilled Yellow Squash and Zucchini Pasta Salad
Here's a great way to use summer's abundant squashes. Toasted pine nuts and briny kalamata olives make this salad a standout.
Orange, Radicchio, and Oregano Salad
The dressing for this salad relies on a smart low-fat cooking technique: Reduce juice to concentrate its sweetness and create a clingy texture, so you don't have to add much oil.
Meatball Vegetable Soup
Traditionally, this gently seasoned soup, called sopa de albondigas, is made with beef. This lighter version substitues ground turkey for the beef and adds fresh oregano.

Charcoal-Grilled Pork Shoulder with Fresh Herbs and Roasted Garlic
Grilling this roast over charcoal is a little complicated, but the results are worth it—the crust is crisper and the meat is melt-in-your-mouth tender. You can do the pork on a gas grill instead.

Add a savory twist to the classic summer side dish: a warm bacon dressing.
