Top 10 grilling ideas for labor day party to make it memorable
•    Corn on the cob, grilled: You would be familiar with grilling corn on the cob. Here is a tip to make it a grilled treat. Baked garlic heads simply squeezed into the mixture of lemon-zest, cilantro, tarragon and oil and seasoned with pepper and salt; and you apply this spread on the peeled corn-ears(after the silk threads have been removed ). Cover the ears once again and they go on the grill, with the flavor of the ‘herbed’ garlic. So you have a grilled corn but with additional flavors- garlic, herbs and the ‘smoked’ taste, which simply seeps into the air.
•    Tomatoes and Scallion on the grill, for a grilled salad:  Here, you give the tomatoes and scallion a good rub with olive oil before putting it on the grill. Grill the tomatoes and scallion for not more than 1 minute per side(till it looks blistered), transfer the contents to a platter and squeeze lemon juice over it, with a drizzle of the lustrous olive oil. Indeed an innovative way to top your party as one of the chosen top 10 grilling ideas for labor day party.
