Dinner salads and grilling are summer staples. Put them together and you get a winning dish that brings all the best flavors of the season together. Break out your grill master skills on a warm night and turn your favorite salad into something a bit more special.

Heads of romaine, avocado halves and ears of corn are made even better with a smoky char in this grilled Cobb salad, pictured above. Bright cherry tomatoes add some zing and bring the salad together.

Mix some margaritas while you grill up this simple summer salad. Jalapeno and poblano peppers heat things up, so don’t be afraid to add a generous sprinkle of Cojita cheese to cool things down.

This hearty dinner gets lightened up as a special dinner salad. Serve it at your next gathering for a fancy meal without all the work.

Chinese five-spice powder, brown sugar and more bring loads of flavor to sweet meat and grilled plums. Fresh veggies and roasted nuts add crunch.
