All I want to eat during the summer is grilled vegetables. We eat them in some version almost every night since it is normally too hot to turn on the stove and I get bored with salads pretty quickly. While they normally are just a side dish, lately I have been making these simple Grilled Vegetable Tostadas and we have have been loving them. You can use any vegetables you have at home and then you just need a simple homemade spice blend to add some flavor. Topped with a quick homemade fresh salsa, avocado, and some shredded cheese - it's a perfect summer meal.
