Our Top 5 Spring Grilling Recipes
We grill year-round here at Kalamazoo, but there’s no question that grilling becomes more of a pleasure as temperatures warm up, friends and family join us outdoors, and seasonal fruits and vegetables become locally available again. We always recommend starting the spring grilling season by thoroughly cleaning your grill and making sure you have the right tools on hand, including a grill grate scraper and thick grilling gloves.
Once spring cleaning is done, it’s time to cook. We gravitate towards recipes with ingredients that taste best in spring – tender lamb, young herbs, and the earliest fruit and vegetable crops. Check out our top five favorite spring grilling recipes below!
