Summertime and the Livin' is Easy

I'm not a huge fan of summer weather, but I am a huge fan of summer food. I love the simplicity of fresh produce and easy dishes. Yesterday, the family and I had a delicious meal of pork chops dressed only with salt, pepper, and a little sage, fresh New Jersey corn, vidalia onion drizzled with a little olive oil, and potatoes all cooked on the grill. Super simple, but oh so yummy. That's what I love so much about summer. Clean flavors, uncomplicated cooking, and the freshest ingredients you can find. To me that says summer even more than the heat and the beach, both of which I could do without. But fresh fruit and vegetables, that I could never say no to. What's everyone's favorite summer food?
