Grilled Yellow Squash

Grilled Squash 1

Another veggie that screams “spring is here!” to me is yellow squash. We get all sorts of heirloom varieties of squash from our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)* farm, and it’s always an adventure trying to figure out how to cook them. But there’s nothing better than keepin’ it simple with some salt, pepper, and olive oil – and then letting the grill do its thang. Wonderfully sweet and smoky, these grilled slices of squash are the perfect side for any summer meal.

*No worries if you are not familiar with CSAs, because I will be doing a very detailed post on our very own CSA in May! We get baskets of fresh fruits and veggies from a local farm once a week all through the growing season. Look for a post around Mother’s Day – that’s when their harvesting season kicks off.

Grilled Yellow Squash

4-6 medium yellow squash, washed and sliced length-wise about 1/2″ thick
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. (We used the good ol’ George Foreman tonight.)

Toss all ingredients together in a medium bowl. Grill for about 2-4 minutes on each side, until you can see the nice charred grill marks! Serve immediately.
