Hey, Grill Master! Isn’t it time you stepped up to the Grilled Wedge Salad?

Summertime isn’t getting any longer. And sure, you’re already a legend in front of the coals.
Your burgers and dogs make kids sit up straight. Even at the picnic table.
BBQ chicken doesn’t dare flare up on your watch. Not a chance.
Your baby back ribs don’t fall from the bone, they leap from it.
To steaks, chops and brats — Crosshatch is your middle name.

And veggies? Sure. You grill ‘em. You’ve never met a corn on the cob, zucchini or artichoke you couldn’t make more mouthwatering. But up until now, your salad’s been nothing but tossed.

So Grill Master, it’s time you become a Wedge Master.
