What are you cooking for dinner tonight? If you stop at the store on your way home from work and pick up a half pound of shrimp, or some inexpensive chicken thighs — or, better yet, a couple of juicy pork chops — one of these recipes will get your dinner on the table in less than half an hour. No meat? No problem. There's a wonderful grilled salad recipe too!

Pick one of these recipes, add a side of grilled zucchini or a simple salad, and an ice-cold drink (lemonade? Or maybe a more adult version?) and you have yourself a great meal for staying well-fed yet cool this evening.

  1. Simple Rosemary-Rubbed Pork Chops
  2. Spicy Grilled Shrimp
  3. Tangy, Spicy Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
  4. Korean Barbecued Short-Ribs
  5. Grilled Cactus and Corn Salad

What are you cooking for dinner? Does it involve the grill?
