Summer Grilling: Summer Squash

If you're going to fire up the grill to cook your steak, chicken, or hamburgers, you might as well grill your veggies. In the first post of my Summer Grilling series, I grilled corn-on-the-cob. Now here is a simple way to prepare summer squash.

Grilled Summer Squash

Wash and dry the squash and cut in half lengthwise. Brush both sides with olive oil. Salt  and pepper to taste.
Heat grill to medium and brush the grate with olive oil. 

Place squash on grill and cook for about 5 minutes. Turn, and cook for another 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender. 

That's it! So simple and so delicious. Grilling the squash adds a wonderful smoky flavor. Even those who usually turn up their noses at squash, will love it grilled.

  1. Yum yummy yum! I love squash! cutting it like that probably helps it cook faster and evenly! Thanks Sallie!!!

    1. Thanks, Janis! I sometimes slice squash with some other veggies, season, and wrap in heavy duty aluminum foil. That's also delicious, but I love the grill marks on the veggies when I cook them directly on the grill.
