"For this classic Mediterranean summer menu, I used foods that taste light and fresh, like asparagus and watermelon, and sauces like aïoli with a citrusy twist. Another bonus to the menu is that many of the recipes can be prepped entirely in advance, leaving you time to relax and have fun with friends—which, to me, is what grilling is all about." —Cat Cora
