Grilled Avocado With Marinated Tomato Salad can be served as a salad dish or as part of the main course. You read that right: grilled avocado (I also put a “Wait, what?” on that). And if that isn’t intriguing enough on its own, get this: Instead of using vegetable oil, coat the cut edge of the avocado with mayonnaise to keep it from sticking to the grill grate.

Grilled Spring Carrots with Fresh Za’atar and Tahini Labneh, made with baby carrots instead of regular size, make a great appetizer and accompaniment to grilled meats. Regardless of the size of the carrots, the taste of the labneh and the earthiness of the tahini and za’atar, along with the smokiness of the char, help the sweetness of the carrots shine.

They will have a great smoked, grilled taste, look pristine, and peeling will be much easier. Grilled eggplant with anchovies, garlic, and rosemary is as simple as cutting slits in the eggplant and stuffing them with bits of fish and herbs, just like you would prepare a leg of lamb.
