Grilled Squash

grilled squashWhile our son is home from the Navy, I’ve been trying to show him that vegetables are easy to cook. We got a good supply of summer squash in our box this week-7 golden zucchini and 3 pan squash. I whipped up this grilled squash to serve as a side dish with grilled chicken. It was pretty bland, until I added some lemon juice which really improved the flavor.

  • 1 pound yellow summer squash, cut into bite sized pieces
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  1. Preheat grill and grill skillet.
  2. Combine squash, basil, and olive oil. Spoon onto the grill skillet. (Don't pour it in or you will have a huge flare up and burn the squash.) Grill squash until softened, stirring frequently.

I realized tonight that I have grilled 4 of the last 5 nights. I love summer!

Happy eating!
