Let's face it: Father's Day is, commonly, an all-out meat bacchanalia. Does it have to be? No. But there's something primally satisfying about the smell of charcoal and lighter fluid, building a roaring hot fire, and filling the air with smoke mingled with the aroma of grilled meat. Of course, that meat has to go with something, so we've included a lovely grilled salad. These recipes will get you inspired for your dad-celebrating grill fest.
