It’s Time to Get Sizzlin’
Grilling is by far one of my favorite ways to cook during the warmer months and with summer is in full swing, I’ve teamed up with ALDI to share a few of my top grilling picks. Whether you’re firing up the gas grill for a quick weeknight dinner or hosting a crowd, we’ve got you covered!
ALDI consistently has the best quality foods at the best prices including fresh produce, organics, and everyday items like olive oil that won’t break the bank, saving you up to 50% compared to other grocery stores.
Crowd Pleasing Grilled Appetizer
For easy, make-ahead appetizers, try these Summer Pinwheels made with turkey, ham, arugula, and a delicious cheese spread you make with a little mayo, mustard, and red pepper flakes. You can even add these to the grill for a few minutes if you wanted to serve them warm!
For the Meat Lovers
You can’t go wrong with this Chili Rubbed Flat Iron Steak for your upcoming Forth of July cookout. This quick and easy wet rub made with chipotle peppers, cumin and paprika has a little kick of heat, but not too spicy so everyone can enjoy. For the best flavor, let the steak marinate overnight in the fridge before tossing it on the grill.
Don’t miss out on ALDI’s incredible Weekly Fresh Meat Specials. When you see the “Weekly Fresh Meat Special” sign, you’ll find extra-low prices on the very best cuts of meat.
Kabobs are always a favorite of mine, so I had to share these Grilled Herb Chicken Skewers. The marinate takes only 15 minutes and sizzle of the chicken hitting the grill and the aroma of rosemary and garlic cooking into the chicken will have your neighbors wishing they were invited to your dinner table. Serve the chicken skewers over a bed of Simply Nature arugula lightly dressed with olive oil and lemon zest for a refreshing and delicious summer meal.
Perfect Grilled Vegetables (and so EASY!)
I love all the fresh and colorful veggies that are starting to explode from the gardens. So while we are talking kebobs, how about complimenting your grilled meats with these Grilled Balsamic Vegetable Pops! These skewers are so colorful with zucchini, corn, peppers and mushrooms, and it’s also great for veggies from your garden.
Pierce your veggies with skewers and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and place on a hot grill. Once they are golden brown (about 10 minutes), pull them and drizzle with balsamic vinegar for a zingy flavor. And if you are using wooden skewers, don’t forget to soak them in water for 10 minutes prior to grilling to prevent them from burning.
