Grilled Pina Colada Sundae

Pina coladas are an indulgent tropical vacation in a glass. I’ll make them at home as a treat any time I’m in the mood, but I really love serving them up for a crowd at a party or cookout. These Grilled Pina Colada Sundaes are a twist on this classic drink that is a great way to finish off any summer barbecue. The sundaes are made with fresh grilled pineapple and creamy coconut ice cream,

You’ll want to start with a whole, fresh pineapple – especially if you’re planning to make enough for a crowd. Cut the pineapple into 1/2-inch thick round slices, then place directly on the grill. Cook at low heat for 2-4 minutes per side, until there are nice grill marks and the pineapple appears juicy. The pineapple will be juicy when you start, of course, but the heat of the grill will draw out even more. If your pineapple is not quite ripe yet, then plan for an extra minute or two to allow some of the sugars in the fruit to caramelize.

Once the pineapple is grilled, transfer it to a cutting board and cut off the outer skin. The reason I cut it off after is that it is so much easier to grill the pineapple in big slices than it is to peel the whole pineapple and move more slippery slices around! Then, cut away the fruit of the pineapple, leaving the core behind. If you have a pineapple corer, feel free to core the pineapple in advance.

To assemble the sundaes, pile grilled fruit in dessert bowls and top with a big scoop of coconut ice cream. I actually used homemade coconut frozen yogurt in this sundae, but your favorite coconut ice cream will do nicely. To give this a real pina colada finish – if you’re an adult who is a fan of the cocktails like I am – drizzle 1/2 ounce of rum over the top of each sundae before serving. Dark rum is great, but I really like Plantation Pineapple Rum for even more pineapple flavor. If you’re not drinking, drizzle a bit of caramel onto the ice cream before serving instead.

Grilled Pina Colada Sundaes
1 whole, fresh pineapple
2 pints coconut ice cream
1/2 oz rum per sundae
caramel sauce

Remove the fronds from the pineapple (save for garnish, if desired).
Cut pineapple into 1/3-1/2 inch rounds, discarding the very top and bottom of the pineapple.
Preheat your grill to medium-low heat. Grill pineapple slices for 2-4 minutes per side, until nice grill marks appear and the pineapple is juicy and slightly caramelized.
Transfer pineapple to a cutting board and remove the outer skin of the pineapple. Cut up the grilled fruit into 1/2-1 inch chunks.
Pile fruit into dessert bowls and top each with a large scoop of coconut ice cream. Drizzle with 1/2-oz of rum, if desired, and a little caramel sauce.
Leftover grilled pineapple can be refrigerated for later use.

Makes 8-10 sundaes, depending on the size of the pineapple

Listen, I don’t make the rules. These things aren’t rational. But at some point over our vacation in Scotland — a time when we mostly consumed fish and chips, more chips, steak pie, also with chips, a detail that I’m sure is unrelated — I began intensely craving the combination of peaches and blue cheese even though I can’t think of a time when they’ve crossed paths in my kitchen. Once we got home, I beelined for Salad Freak by Jess Damuck [Amazon, Bookshop, More Indies], a cookbook that came out this spring, because I had a hunch she’d put the idea in my head and sure enough, she had a combination of stone fruit and blue cheese waiting to fulfill my wayward vacation craving.

If you are thinking you don’t need a cookbook for salads, as I might have in the past, I’m here to tell you how wrong we are. We do, if not for exact measurements then for inspiration. For more creative ways to throw together what’s left in your fridge so nothing goes to waste. And to figure out what to eat when you’re in the third heat wave [fourth? fifth? heat waves are just a continuum now, aren’t they?] of the summer and everything you thought you’d want to cook in August no longer makes sense because it’s too hot to cook. Damuck’s book has us covered. There’s a breakfast salad with yogurt, cucumbers, eggs, and toasted seeds. There are soba salads and shredded kale salads and tortellini salads dressings with miso-mayo and horseradish goat cheese and a BBQ chicken cobb beloved by Snoop Dogg and every single thing is just a little bit unexpected and delivering the freshness I need right now.

This is our favorite BBQ chicken pizza – it’s a slice of heaven! Made entirely on the grill, this has summer crisp corn, BBQ sauce, ranch dressing and tons of herbs. Finish it with some pickled onions. Delicious!

Everything I want on a pizza is right here… OH MY GOODNESS.

Look at this pile of flavor right here. Puffy, charred dough loaded up with all the things.

grilled summer BBQ chicken pizza

This summer grilled pizza is stacked. We’re talking smoky, charred chicken in BBQ sauce. Corn off the cob. Crisp green onions and chives. Lots of cheese – cheddar, mozzarella, parmesan! Fresh chives, pickled onions and all the herbs. And of course, my favorite ranch dressing for drizzling all over. 

It seriously does not get better than this. 

grilled summer BBQ chicken pizza right off the grill

This pizza is one of those meals that just tastes like summer.

We’re grilling the entire thing, so it’s charred and smoky and wonderful. You can always use an ooni pizza oven too if you have that – we love ours. But sometimes, throwing everything right on the grill while it’s still hot from the chicken is the way to go. It’s easy, it keeps the house cool and it tastes like heaven. 

grilled summer BBQ chicken pizza

So I have made a million different versions of BBQ chicken pizza before.

We’ve done whole wheat ones, french bread pizzas, everything. There are a few musts for me when it comes to creating the whole BBQ chicken flavor that I love. First, the charred smokiness from the grill. Obviously. Next, I love to do sharp cheddar. Also, a really good BBQ sauce, even a homemade one like this chipotle version. Green onions, chives, fresh herbs are also all key here for it to taste incredible.

The corn here is what makes the pizza really special. It adds a bit of sweetness so we have the whole sweet and savory flavor going on here. It also adds a crisp little crunch from the kernels. You can throw the corn on fresh – like literally slice it off the cob and add it on the pizza – or you can grill it while you grill the chicken and cut it off the cob.

Whichever you prefer. Either way, it adds so much to this perfect pie.

And, you know,  I usually love to do caramelized onions with anything BBQ chicken-flavored, but I didn’t want to turn on my gas burner for an hour. Heat wave problems.

So we kept it fresh and light with my quick pickled onions which you can make ahead of time. I have them in my fridge at all times. They are delicious on everything: salads, tacos, bowls, sandwiches and of course pizza.  (more…)

Pesto, peach, prosciutto… all on pizza! I don’t know if it can get more delicious than this.

I love peaches on pizza so much. They are unexpected but complement nearly anything else you can add: all sorts of cheese, herbs, tomatoes, even chicken or other vegetables. You don’t THINK you will enjoy peaches on pizza and then you have said pizza and can’t believe you went so long without the combo. 

pesto peach pizza with prosciutto and burrata

Of course, this is not the first time I put peaches on your pizza! A few years ago I made this peach and corn pizza and it is truly divine. One of the best summer pizzas you can make. I’ve also done a peach ricotta pizza with microgreens. Serious yum. 

So now, you have three summer peach pizzas to make! How to choose… 

pesto peach pizza with prosciutto and burrata

Peaches and pesto go together like PB and J. So herby, so fresh, so sweet – the combination is delicious any way that you serve it. On salad, in a sandwich, as an appetizer and obviously pizza. Cannot get enough over here. 

Which reminds me – I need a post of just my classic pesto recipe! It is the absolute best. I make it every week and we use it on EVERYTHING. Nothing is off limits. 

Now that doesn’t mean you have to use a traditional pesto here, even though I do love the basil and peach combination. You can use any pesto you make at home or buy. Kale pesto, pistachio pesto, arugula pesto – truly anything.

pesto peach pizza with prosciutto and burrata

We already know the pizza has three P’s – pesto, peaches and prosciutto.

What I haven’t told you yet is that it also has burrata! Oh YES.

As if this pizza could get any better? I mean burrata is one of the highlights here. 

And the entire pizza is grilled, which gives it a crispy, chewy crust and lots of charred and smoky flavor. 

This is divine. 

pesto peach pizza with prosciutto and burrata

When it comes to grilling pizza, the key is to move FAST. I almost exclusively grill our pizzas in the summer. Otherwise I use the ooni pizza oven.

When I prep the pizza for the grill, I have everything ready to go. In this case, I thinly slice my peaches. I pull the burrata cheese apart and have it on a plate so I can quickly transfer it to the dough. I have my pesto out with a spoon and spatula.

Moving fast is important so the dough transfers easily from the peel to the grill. Have all the things ready to go and you’ll have grilled pizza success. (more…)

Nothing beats a good summer bowl.

grilled chicken summer rice bowls

My grilled chicken rice bowls are what I make on Sundays or Mondays when I have NO idea what else to make. Marinated grilled chicken, jasmine rice, cilantro lime vinaigrette, juicy tomatoes, corn, pickled onions and avocado. Leftovers are incredible and the elements come together fast – especially if you have a few minutes to chop everything before.

These are a must-make! 

grilled chicken

I have shared so many incredible vinaigrettes with you guys over the years, but I’m often highlighting my absolute favorite ones. Since the recipes for the dressings often make more than you need, I always want to give you another option. Of course – leftovers are always a win. 

But if I make a vinaigrette at the start of the week, I love having two different meals to use with it. It offers so much variety and really elevates my menu for the week, even if the menu is SIMPLE. 

My goal is to highlight how versatile these vinaigrettes can be – whether they are used as marinade, a drizzle, a dressing or a dip!

cilantro lime dressing

That’s what these chicken bowls are all about!

For this recipe, I marinate the chicken in my cilantro lime marinade. It’s one of my favorites – if not my #1. If cilantro lime is NOT your favorite, I have a few other suggestions that work just as well.

You can marinate the chicken in this basil vinaigrette. This raspberry chipotle vinaigrette is also another option. This classic balsamic is a great one to use, and very picky-palate friendly. And finally, a classic apple cider vinegar can’t be beat. That one reminds me of a “house italian” dressing at restaurants, which, yes – are always slightly different but tend to have the same flavor profile. 

The point is, almost any dressing will work. I even love to marinate my chicken in creamy dressings like ranch or blue cheese.

grilled chicken summer rice bowls

My choice for this bowl is usually the cilantro lime vinaigrette. It’s what I’m using here. I love how vibrantly green it is – it makes everything taste so incredibly fresh. And it looks super pretty too!

For the bowl itself, I like to cook jasmine rice. It’s so beautifully fragrant and our family’s favorite rice. Then I go to town with toppings!

My usual go-tos are: 

Tomatoes – cherry or diced or whatever you have on hand.

Avocado – it’s so creamy and adds a satisfying element.

Corn – sometimes grilled or even cut straight from the cob! Sweet and crunchy.

Pickled onions – because they are always in my fridge.

Extra dressing – to make the whole bowl pop.

I LOVE the combination here. The hot, grilled chicken. The citrusy, herby vinaigrette. The jasmine rice which is light and chewy. Creamy avocado, crunchy corn, fresh tomatoes and those pickled onions with a tangy bite.  (more…)

Letter of recommendation: Make ricotta this summer. I was originally going to write “Ditch the burrata and make some ricotta this summer,” but neither wish to besmirch burrata nor do I plan to go tomato season without it. Should a burrata tree (it grows on trees, or must based on the frequency in which it appears) spontaneously appear on my terrace, I will be the happiest and most popular girl in all of the Lower East Side this summer. But since like most of us, I’m still buying it at stores where it’s quite expensive, spoils quickly, and is only sometimes spectacular, I’m here to make the argument that homemade ricotta is not only rich, delicious, and a cinch to make, but that in almost all of the places we’re serving burrata, ricotta* would be deliciously welcome too.

This grilled salmon club sandwich is perfect for summer! Topped with juicy tomatoes, crunchy bacon, lettuce and the most delicious charred scallion mayo – it is a hit all around.

I have such a crave-worthy meal for you today!

salmon club sandwich with charred scallion mayo

I am always looking for new and exciting ways to enjoy salmon and this sandwich hits the spot. It’s crunchy, flavorful, super satisfying and everyone in our house really loves it. The mayo is fabulous, the salmon is buttery and flakey, the summer tomatoes are ripe and juicy and the bacon is so crunchy and savory.

Basically the best sandwich of life. 

blackened grilled salmon

If you’re looking for a way to switch up your salmon game, I cannot recommend this enough. 

charred scallion mayo

And – If you’ve been here for a while, you may remember when I made salmon BLT sliders years ago. Like a decade ago! I can’t believe it’s been 10 years. That is a combo that I love to throw together, especially if we have leftover salmon from dinner one night. Instead of reheating it and eating it the same way – we do a lunchtime slider and change it up.

grilled sourdough bread

For this salmon sandwich, I love to do my blackened seasoning. I’m sure you’ve noticed that I use this on chicken and salmon constantly. It is incredible and so easy to make – but makes a huge difference. We all love it here, and sometimes I’ll leave out the crushed red pepper just to make sure the kids don’t get any spicy bits. 

I also love to grill this salmon – and I like to grill the bread too. There are few things in this season better than grilled sourdough. It is a Sunday staple for us – whether I do it for dinner or even breakfast toast. So while the salmon is on the grill, I also throw the bread on. Super simple!

If the salmon has skin, I grill it skin-side down with the lid closed. I do not flip it. If the salmon does not have skin, I use a grill pan and spray it with a nonstick spray. I usually don’t flip it here either, unless I’m working with thinly sliced salmon filets and it’s easy to do. This method has been foolproof for me for years. 

The salmon ends up with that charred and smoky flavor, but is still very buttery and soft. 

salmon club sandwich with charred scallion mayo

I know that a club sandwich technically has layered bread, but since the salmon is thicker, I find that no extra bread is needed. I stick with the classics of tomato, lettuce and bacon – along with a fancy mayo to keep things exciting. 

sourdough with scallion mayo

Oh my word. 

This mayo might just be the best part. I love charred scallion anything, but whipping it into this mayonnaise – WOW. It’s so simple but packs such a flavor punch. 

While the salmon and bread are on the grill, I throw the scallions on too. They only take a minute! Once they cool, I slice them and then stir into mayonnaise. You can also do this with softened cream cheese too for bagels. It is SUPER good.

The whole sandwich is so crunchy and wonderful. I am not a huge sandwich person, but this makes me a sandwich person. I love how tender and buttery the salmon is inside the sandwich. It is perfect against the crisp bacon. (more…)

If you have a copy of Everyday Dinners, then you know that there is a grilled chicken watermelon salad in the book. OH MY WORD. This salad guys… the second I started making grilled chicken and watermelon salads? My summer was made.

I photographed that recipe in 2019 and tested it in 2018… meaning I have lots of chicken and watermelon salads under my belt. The combination is so fabulous. It’s the best summer salad because of the smoky, charred chicken paired with the juicy, refreshing watermelon. There are so many things about it that I love!

watermelon vinaigrette

So this isn’t that exact salad. I know. Which may come as a disappointment since I just raved about it. But you can grab the book!

See, the thing is, that last fall, Eddie grabbed some bagged salads at the grocery store for his work lunches. This was in September, so watermelon season was on its way out. But one of the salads that he grabbed had a watermelon vinaigrette. Like a pre-made, bagged watermelon vinaigrette.

I just about died. WHAT! Why hadn’t I been making watermelon vinaigrette all my life?

So that was that, and ever since I’ve been watermelon vinaigrette.

Had to wait until it was in season to share it with you, but it was worth the wait. I promise.

blackened chicken watermelon salad

P.S. if you’re wondering about the dressing in the book version of this recipe – it’s my chili lime vinaigrette which is equally outstanding. A little heat and lime on this salad is also perfect.

But back to TODAY’s watermelon chicken salad.

I like to do a blackened chicken on the grill because it’s very flavorful and one way I adore eating chicken. I will sometimes double this chicken and grill it, chop it, then store in the fridge for salads, quesadillas and even a quick clean-out-the-fridge pasta.

blackened chicken watermelon salad

Here is what makes this salad unique!

  • Arugula. Crispy, peppery arugula as the base. It may be my favorite green? I love the bite so much. Of course – use whatever lettuce you like here. Kale would be good, you just need to massage it first. Butter lettuce, romance, anything! 
  • The blackened chicken – preferably warm. It doesn’t have to be but have you had warm grilled chicken on a cold, crisp salad? It’s so darn good. 
  • Watermelon! Of course.
  • Cucumbers too! I like the savory, icy, refreshing coolness of the cucumbers in this salad. Also gives a tiny crunch here. 
  • Feta cheese. I like it crumbled. You could also do goat cheese or even cheddar here. However, the feta + watermelon combo is a classic.
  • Pistachios! Live for a super crunch here. Any nut works but the pistachio is so buttery, nutty and it doesn’t hurt with a pretty pop of green.
  • Finally, the watermelon vinaigrette. Um, it’s freaking amazing. 

blackened chicken watermelon salad

This vinaigrette is simple. I highly suggest getting a nutribullet and using it for dressings. It’s what I use it for 95% of the time! 

I throw some watermelon cubes in the nutribullet. Any blender will work. No extra liquid needed because the melon is so water packed. I blend it up, then I strain it through a fine mesh strainer (a tiny one like this) to remove the pulp. 

Once I have the watermelon juice, I measure out about ¼ cup. You can drink the rest! It’s delicious. Also use it in cocktails, omg. 

Then a classic vinaigrette happens here! Some red wine vinegar, a drop of honey, a little garlic, some olive oil. The dressing may have this crazy orange tint to it once it is emulsified. If you’re just whisking the dressing, it may never turn this color completely – but if you use a blender to bring the vinaigrette together, it will. Still tastes the same and is practically drinkable. (more…)

Throw this honey mustard chicken on the menu this week because it’s incredibly flavorful, filled with charred, smoky flavor from the grill. The broccoli is just as good and together, you can have dinner done in a few minutes. 

Sounds good to me!

Plus, I love a meal that can be made entirely on the grill.

chicken marinating in honey mustard

Honey mustard is my love language. I mean, I’ve talked about my obsession with mustards for years but honey mustard is one of the first sauces/dressings I ever really fell in love with. I’ve adored it since I was a young kid and the feeling has never left. 

I’d eat just about anything slathered in honey mustard. 

P.S. if you need a fab salad, this honey mustard chopped chicken salad is pretty incredible.

grilled broccoli

To make this chicken, I marinate it in my own dijon mustard and honey combo. I also baste it with some honey mustard while on the grill, so it gets all saucy. It’s basically like BBQ sauce, but honey mustard sauce. Which I prefer, thank you very much. 

It’s so freaking good!

grilled honey mustard chicken

I like to sprinkle the chicken with a handful of fresh chopped chives for some brightness and refreshing flavor. After that, I can basically slice this and eat it as it. Super juicy, tender and the perfect contrast of savory and sweet.

The broccoli is simple as can be.

Olive oil, salt, pepper, maybe some garlic powder if you love it. The best part about the broccoli is that it gets so charred and golden and delish. SO good. We love it just as much as roasted broccoli, but this also has the smoky flavor from the grill which you just can’t beat. There is no real “recipe” here for the broccoli – when it comes to vegetables on the grill, I grill them until they are dark and golden and charred. You pull it off when it’s done to your liking.

I live for a pizza that I can make a million different ways and this does not disappoint. Add in an incredibly herby sauce and, well… there is no argument that this is incredible.

veggies ready for the grill

This is one of my favorite ways to prep a quick and delicious pizza.

We adore using naan for pizza, first off. It’s so fluffy and tender and delicious. I have a recipe for my own garlic butter naan here and it is phenomenal. It doesn’t require yeast and is super easy to make. So if you feel like making it from scratch, go for it!

Otherwise, just grab some of your favorite store bought naan because we’re throwing it on the grill anyway.

grilled asparagus and mushrooms

I love how easily you can turn these into ANYTHING you want. Naan or pita bread, any vegetables, a chimichurri drizzle – even the cheese can be customized to your liking!

Really, it is simple as can be.

grilled vegetables

Now, the veggies! I am never going to use an actual “recipe” for the vegetable part. I basically use whatever I have on hand. Whatever looks like it’s about to die a slow death in my crisper drawer or whatever I have leftover from the week. Or whatever everyone wants!

My go-to favorites for grilling?

Asparagus

Broccoli

Cauliflower

Bell peppers

Red onion

Mushrooms 

grilled naan pizza

Those ones are all soooo delish and you can’t go wrong.

I have lots of tutorials on grilled vegetables, but I mostly stick to one rule: I combine the veggies that have similar cook times. For instance, I usually keep thin asparagus spears and sliced mushrooms together. I also keep peppers and onions together. This way, nothing burns and I can always pull a pan off the grill.

grilled naan pizza with chimichurri

Speaking of grill pans! I love to use them for vegetables. If you grilled veggies a lot like we do, I highly suggest this pan because it keeps everything contained nicely. You need high quality for that grill heat!

Of course, you can also find one on amazon and I use ones like that too. I’ve even bought mine at ALDI in years past. I like to have two grill pans on hand so I can use both for the different vegetables. It’s important!  (more…)
