Monday: Grilled Pepper and Red-Onion Pizzas

It's grilled everything tonight. Whether you grill outside or use a grill pan on the stove, you'll be grilling the veggie toppings and the whole pizzas for this quick, colorful meatless meal. And using store-bought dough means you can get these individual pies on the table in just 35 minutes.

TUESDAY: Sausage-Stuffed Zucchini

Consider this a season-straddling meal, using the bounty of summer zucchini that's all around but turning it hearty as only a sausage filling can. (And if you feel so inclined, these boats can be made a day ahead and refrigerated, then baked the day of eating.)

Who doesn't love tomatoes and mozzarella? Here, we pair cherry tomatoes with their favorite cheese but cook the tomatoes with piquant Peppadew peppers and also invite quick-cooking chicken paillards to the party.

And then there's this magnificent dinner salad to brighten up your week. Do you love a Niçoise salad as much as we do? Have you ever tried it with salmon before? Make this 40-minute main tonight and taste how the salmon pairs beautifully with creamy potatoes, briny olives, and tender green beans.

Another steak Friday but this fast dinner uses rib-eye, sliced thin and quickly marinated in a soy-sesame marinade before stir-frying. Serve with rice, kimchi, chiles, and scallions, and let everyone make their own lettuce wraps.

SATURDAY: Pressure-Cooker Tamales

Tender, fluffy tamales in no time at all! The Instant Pot or pressure cooker makes short work of cooking these cheesy parcels. The most time-consuming part of this dinner might be wrapping the dough in corn husks. Serve with black beans—bonus points if you cook them in the pressure cooker!

SUNDAY: Smoky Grilled Chicken with Sweet Vinegar Sauce

Because it's not officially fall yet and the weather is still likely to be extremely summery, we're grilling tonight. Another reason to cook this recipe? It's absolutely irresistible; a whole chicken is cut into pieces and marinated in a smoky spice rub, then grilled and brushed with a salty-sweet vinegar sauce. Will you enjoy it with potato salad or cornbread?
