Grilled summer squash is one of my favorite go-to grilled vegetable recipes (In reality, I don’t have THAT many grilled vegetable recipes…). Incredibly easy to make, the squash has a slightly sweet taste, and the grill adds just a touch of that smokey flavor. The squash is very simply seasoned with salt, pepper and olive oil.
The cooking time will vary depending on how hot your grill gets. You want to be careful not to overcook it or it will become mush. The goal is to get some nice grill marks on either side – I shoot for about 2-3 minutes a side. My philosophy? You can always throw it back on for a few minutes if necessary.
