EMBED </>More Videos

Salt, pepper and California produce go well with surf and turf when getting your grill on for Labor Day parties, Napa Valley Grille chef Andrew Bice says.

Burgers and hot dogs are the most popular items grilled on Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day, but chef Andrew Bice of the Napa Valley Grille says you can up your game by using surf and turf this year.

Bice uses thinly-sliced skirt steak and shrimp with a bit of salt and pepper, and says both cook quickly.

When the proteins are nearly done, he puts sliced peaches on the grill to add to his grilled peach slaw. He puts all of the grilled items on top of the Napa cabbage mix combined with a grapefruit vinaigrette.

Quick, easy, and tasty for your Labor Day crowd.

Peach vinaigrette goes on the peach slaw. Add the proteins and top with the grapefruit vinaigrette.
