Grilled Oregano Veggies: Sliced and quartered zucchini and summer squash, and eggplant cut into patties. Coat liberally in oil, oregano, salt and pepper. Grill on both sides until brown & tender.

Mango Avocado Salsa: 2 cups chopped cherry tomatoes, 1 avocado, 1/2 mango, 1/4 red onion, handful of cilantro, 1/4 tsp. cumin, and juice of 2 limes.

Watermelon Mint Feta Salad: Cubed or balled watermelon, with shredded mint and crumbled feta. Served cold.

Chili Lime Mango: 2 mangos sliced, with 1 tbsp, chili powder, juice of 1 lime & pinch of cayenne. Let chill for 1 hour before serving.
