An Easy, Healthy Father’s Day Menu

You love your dad. That’s why you should cook him a Father’s Day menu that’s as healthy as it is delicious. Here’s a Father’s Day menu that takes advantage of fresh summer produce and grilling to add flavor without a ton of extra fat and calories.

Start the meal off with a flavor-packed salsa fresca.

  • Tortilla chips (baked, if you prefer)

Skirt steak is a lean red meat cut that’s great for grilling. This dish gets a lot of low-calorie flavor from a vinegar-y chimichurri sauce.

Vinaigrette-based dressings turn coleslaw into a health food. Cabbage is incredibly healthy, offering a dose of cancer-preventing antioxidants.

You can’t overdo it on vegetables! These foolproof grilled vegetables are an excellent side dish, plus leftovers keep well for additions to salads and sandwiches later on.

Put that grill to work and toast baguettes. Bonus points for grilling a whole-wheat baguette.

  • Grilled baguettes: Brush them with olive oil, then grill them face down.

A fruit dessert is always a no-brainer when you want to get a little nutrition in with your sweet tooth. Keep the grill going and layer on the fruit. Grilled peaches are great on their own, or gussy them up with a honeyed Greek yogurt.
