Let the following menu be your guide for mastering the art of outdoor cooking, with a lineup of recipes that includes a grilled Caesar salad and even a rustic fruit tart. Make the meal from start to finish as a feast for four people, or pick and choose any of the fire-friendly dishes that follow to serve as part of an outdoor potluck or backyard cookout.

So get the grill going and give yourself a new catchphrase for summer cooking — "summertime and the living is easy" will be your motto all season long.
