Charred Corn Salad with Basil and Tomatoes #WhatAGrillWants

Grilled corn is one of my absolute favorite foods of summer. There is just nothing like a cob of sweet corn charred over a grill. Mmm. But as much as I love a simple corn on the cob, sometimes I need a little variety. This recipe from Bon Appetit gives me my beloved grilled corn, plus fresh herbs and tomatoes. What’s not to love? This recipe also allows me to show off some of my favorite grilling tools, courtesy of OXO. I was sent some grilling essentials as a participant in OXO’s #WhatAGrillWants campaign, including a Corn Stripper, Silicone Basting Brush, and 16″ tongs. I was also sent a Bladed Meat Tenderizer (which I plan on using for steak in an upcoming recipe… stay tuned) and a Little Salad Dressing Shaker that is the perfect size for 2 servings; I will have a post including that little guy soon too!   The Silicone Basting Brush is perfect for grilling because it is head resistant, odor resistant, and easy to clean.

Peach-Glazed Chicken with Peach-Studded Bulgur

My boyfriend loves peaches so I am always keeping an eye out for any recipe that incorporates peaches into it. This recipe from Cooking Light not only included peaches two ways, but it also used a wheat product I’ve never used before: bulgur.     Bulgur is a fast cooking whole grain that’s been parboiled, dried, and cracked. One cup of bulgur is only 150 calories and includes 8 grams of fiber and almost 6 grams of protein. Sounds like a good addition to any meal!       Ingredients: 1 1/3 cups water 3/4 cup uncooked bulgur 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided 2 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar, divided 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme 1 teaspoon grated peeled fresh ginger 2 cups chopped peaches 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided 1 ounce goat cheese, crumbled (about 1/4 cup) 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves 1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock 1/4 cup peach preserves 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
