Nothing says summer like fresh grilled summer squash. No sauces, no complex instructions, just plain old simple grilled squash.
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.

Grilled Squash Recipe
- Start by washing the squash and cutting the ends off. Slice the squash lengthwise in 1/4" slices and lay the slices on a baking sheet.
- Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.
- Grill squash 2-3 minutes on each side at about 400 degrees.
- Brush the grill with oil to prevent the squash from sticking
- The squash should have nice grill marks on both sides when done - make sure your grill is hot enough.
- Zucchini can be substituted for squash if desired.
