We grill out a lot during the summertime and not just on weekends. Why wait for the weekend to enjoy eating outside? It’s just as easy to grill out on a Monday as it is on a Saturday.

Since Monday dinner is usually meatless at my house, I have the perfect weeknight meal that the whole family will love and is super easy to prepare. My family loves cooking out when it includes my Coconut Carrot Salad and NEW MorningStar® Farms Meat Lovers Burgers.

Meatless Monday featuring MorningStar Farms, Coconut Carrot Salad and Mexican Corn

Have you seen the NEW MorningStar Farms Quarter Pound Veggie Burgers at Walmart? They are so delicious and the entire family looks forward to Meatless Monday! Each quarter-pound burger is perfectly seasoned. Plus, they are full of protein, which is important to me when I’m planning meals for the family.

Coconut Carrot Salad and NEW Meat Lovers Burgers

MorningStar® Farms is a perfect, healthier meal solution for my family. Whether it’s Meatless Monday, grilling out, or entertaining friends, MorningStar Farms® has options that everyone will love. They have no artificial ingredients, are made with non-GMO soy, and vegan options.

Grilling on Meatless Monday - Coconut Carrot Salad

After planning my menu for the week, it’s so easy and convenient to use Walmart’s Online Grocery Pickup service. Meatless Monday has never been so easy!

How to Make Coconut Carrot Salad

Plump raisins in warm water for five minutes. Drain. In a medium-sized bowl, add the shredded carrots, raisins, and coconut flakes.

Whisk together the olive oil and lime juice. Pour the juice mixture over the carrot mixture and toss together until well mixed. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Coconut Carrot Salad is so easy to put together

After making the salad, I let it chill in the fridge while my husband fires up the grill. We add a few ears of corn alongside the Meat Lovers Burgers and dinner is done in only 10 minutes!

Slather the corn with a little sour cream, parmesan cheese, and chili powder. Grab the coconut carrot salad from the fridge and let everyone add their favorite toppings to the Meat Lovers Burgers.
