The grill is a great place to try new things and experiment with flavors. 

Grilling is all about variety. With the range of flavors and textures that can be created when food meets flame, there's no need for limits! Though if you've been sticking to classic recipes like burgers or dogs then we have some good news: this list will show that there is much more than just beef in store - hello vegans, you'll especially LOVE these recommendations to try.

1. Watermelon

Watermelon is a summertime classic, but when you grill it the sweet flavor becomes unexpectedly savory and meaty. Brush 1-inch thick slices with olive oil before grilling for about five minutes per side until caramelized - then let them dry out so they can be eaten as an appetizer or light meal!

2. Pineapple

The summer season is all about having fun in the sun, but it's also an opportunity for delicious food! If you're looking to add some flavor while keeping things light and refreshing make sure that grilled pineapple tasting sweet with coconut or cinnamon ice cream.

3. Cake

Cake Grilling is a delicious way to bring out the sweet and smoky flavors in your favorite cakes. Simply cut an angel food or pound cake into 1" thick slices, butter both sides then grill over moderate heat until golden-brown about two minutes per side turning occasionally so it doesn't burn too much on one side. With hot yummy cake, how about adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream?!

4. Cauliflower
