With July almost here, grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook this time of year. Between cooking outside, less clean-up, and so many delicious recipes – it’s the perfect way to spend a summer night. For those who don’t have a grill, I am partial to a grill pan.) No matter how you grill – inside, outside, warm weather, or all weather – these recipes taste great.

1. Sriracha Barbecue Chicken, 5 P+
This is one of my favorite all time grilling recipes. If you like barbecue and heat, you will love this recipe. Usually I grill up a double or triple batch with some simple grilled veggies, and use it all week long for salads, pizza (yum!), and rice bowls. It also works great with chicken breasts or pork tenderloin if chicken thighs aren’t your thing.
2. Grilled Eggplant Caprese
I love this recipe from Serious Eats for a grilled version of a classic Caprese salad. The eggplant is gently grilled and then stacked with fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil. The points plus and calories will depend on how much cheese and olive oil you use, but it is a very easy dish to keep low in points.
3. Grilled Ribeyes with Chimichurri, 10 P+
One of my favorite things to cook on the grill is steak. In my opinion, steak just tastes better grilled and since it is something I don’t eat often, I want it to taste amazing when I do. This recipe uses delicious thin cut ribeyes and is served with a lightened up Chimichurri sauce.
4. Basil Burgers with Sun Dried Tomato Mayo, 8 P+
If you haven’t checked out Emily Bites before, head over and check out her delicious, WW friendly recipes. One of my favorite recipes are these Italian inspired Basil Burgers with Sundried Tomato Mayo. Yummy, quick, and a great twist on a classic burger.
5. Grilled Asian Pork Tenderloin, 4 P+
For a twist on a traditional spice rubbed grilled pork tenderloin, try this Asian Barbecue Pork for only 4 points plus per serving. Pork tenderloin is an often overlooked grilling ingredient, but is something I recommend adding to your repertoire. It’s lean, low calorie, WW friendly, and stands up to almost any spice or marinade. A great twist from the classic chicken breast.
