Good to know: Always choose firm-ripe avocados for grilling: Gently press near the stem end with your thumb; there should be some give, without being too soft. Look for skin that is dark green, almost black. If not yet ripe enough, store on the counter in a paper bag for 24 hours and test again.

Grilled Ratatouille

Makes: 4 servings
Prep: 35 minutes
Marinate: 30 minutes
Grill: 14 minutes

Good to know: Freshly chopped garlic packs the most flavor, but you can reduce prep in time by swapping in a heaping tablespoon of jarred.

Pepper tip: To create easy-to-grill sections of sweet pepper, start by holding a pepper by its stem on a cutting board. Slice down one side, following natural curve. Repeat three more times, leaving core and seeds attached to stem.

Pork and Plum Skewers

Good to know: If you often grill kabobs, consider buying metal skewers instead of bamboo. They're cost-effective and hold heat better, plus you don't have to soak them in advance.

Kabob how-to: For pieces of soft fruits like plums, thread skewers through skin to anchor the fruit so it won't fall off while on the grill.
