Meat-Free Grilling

Parsley and Onion Salad

Parsley and Onion Salad

Fresh red onions add cool spice to this simple parsley salad from Jeremiah Cooks (Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2002), by Jeremiah Tower. Served on grilled bread with a touch of mint and a sprinkle of capers, the salad looks as appealing as it tastes.Todd Coleman

While "meat" and "grill" generally go hand-in-hand, there's an underrated world of vegetarian ingredients whose flavors and textures match perfectly with the slow-char effect a grill provides. With fresh sides like eggplant doused in basil vinaigrette or whole favas with shaved Parmesan, hearty mains like an earthy black bean burger or a blue cheese-topped portobello burger, and even dessert — succulent honey-drizzled peaches — we have all your bases covered for a summer night on the grill, meat-free.
