Grilled Zucchini/ Yellow Summer Squash

Hands down, this is one of the best ways to eat fresh zucchini and summer squash. It’s wonderful grilled, garlicky flavor pairs well with steak and a baked potato or fresh salad.

  • 2 yellow squash or zucchini, sliced lengthwise, 1/4-1/2 inch thick
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. Once warm, add the garlic and cook until it is fragrant and sizzling.

Preheat the grill for medium-high heat. Brush the yellow squash/zucchini slices with the garlic-infused olive oil and place oil slide down on the grill. Brush the other sides with the remaining oil and grill for 5-10 minutes per side, or until zucchini/yellow squash is soft. Remove from grill and sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
