This is perfect! We are having and engagement bbq next month! We are going to be grilling both meats and non-meats and lots of vegetables! I'm a veg and my fiance's not, so grilling is the perfect way we both get what we want!

Brooke Rodgers says …

I love veggie kabobs! Squash, onion, peppers and potatoes are my favorite!

lucille barilla says …

Grilling is a way I can get my family to eat foods they would not normally try, so if I win this basket, I will certainly put the items to great use! Thanks Whole Foods

We pretty much grill everything in the summer. I love grilled veggies with a drizzle of good balsamic. I just got my boy friend a smoker for his birthday, so for Mother's Day it was an 8# smoked brisket and it was awesome! Love that grilling season is here :)

Grilling is more about getting family and friends together than enjoying good food.

I love GRILLING! I will grill practically any vegetable/meat all summer long! Veggie burgers, fish, chicken, ribs, buffalo burgers! Anything!

I love tossing down some veggies that have been coated with a little olive oil, salt & pepper! Grilling veggies makes them taste SO yummy. Throw on a pork chop or some chicken and you've got a good time going on.

Kicking it back with family and friends. Enjoying the summer sun with a nice cold one while having a great day off celebrating Decoration day remembering those who have fallen for our great nation.

Michele Sanford says …

I would love to win this grilling basket!! I love you store, but unfortunately there is not a Whole Foods near my house, I live in Fullerton, California. The closest store is about 30 minutes away, and because of gas prices it is too far for me to drive to just go grocery shopping. I used to work in the Santa Monica area, and would go to Whole Foods every week and walk around the store like I was a kid in a candy store!!

sarina brewer says …

i just love that ya'll provide such great products! thanks alot!

Diana says …

we love to grill out an entire meal and eat outside any time the weather is nice - we even grill breakfast!

Christy says …

I love to grill out and think you can really eat so much healthier when you grill. Steaks, and grilled veggies with a side of grilled shrimp sure sounds good right now. I grow my own veggies and love to put a little EVOO and some seasoning on them and lightly grill them.

Saleena says …

Spring sucks, summer rules!!! Bring on the grill parties!! :-D

Nancy Cook says …

Few things say summer more loudly than bbq. Love a good steak and lots of grilled veggies!

Corinne Greenberg says …

We *finally* set up our back deck patio furniture and fired up the grill just this past weekend. Mother's Day menu included many veggie side salad, grilled chicken breasts, and grilled asparagus-carrot-yellow squash-red onion-baby portobellos tossed with olive oil & seasoning. Yum-o! Happy Mother's Day to me! :-)

Kristen Seguin says …

I would love to win this!

Barbie-Jo Lord says …

One of my favorites is grilling sea scallops with sliced vadalia onions, green peppers and mushrooms with salt, pepper, garlic, extra virgin olive oil and butter....Yummy!!

Frankie says …

There's nothing like a wonderful mixed grill! It willk be easy to prep with this basket of goodies.

Lisa Higgins says …

Forgot to add that I LOVE to grill veggies - especially asparagus, corn and zucchini!! We have grilled veggies all summer long with dinner!

laurie says …

We try to cook on the grill as much as possible over the summer. We do a lot of bbq chicken, with grilled potatoes or sweet corn. And a ton of burgers and dogs for the kids.

R. Moore says …

I just bought a new grill and have spent the past 4 days doing nothing but grilling for dinner and every single thing that's been grilled has been from WFM in Portland, ME.

Carly says …

Not only does my husband need this basket he also needs a new grill. Does that fit in there?

kathy mahalak says …

I look forward to going to the summer farm markets and bringing home all the frest fruits and veggies to grill. So good to add them to salads and sandwiches. The basket would be a wonderful addition to my pantry to make my grilling this summer spectacular. Thanks and have an awesome summer.
