"This is the way my Dad cooked summer squash on the grill. I have modified it a bit over the years, but it continues to be a tasty-easy no-mess way to cook yellow squash and zucchini on the grill to go with your burgers, steaks, or pork."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note
  • For a spicier option, add 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of oregano, and 1 tablespoon of hot sauce (I use Franks(R) Red Hot(R)). This adds a slightly different color along with a robust flavor to the squash.

A very healthy low fat side dish that's perfect for the grill! I add a little italian seasoning leave out the olive oil and just add some parmesan cheese right before serving.

Zucchini cooked in olive oil with tomatoes, onions and garlic is something very familiar to me - I grew up with it and make it often. This was the first time I had Hubs "take it out to the grill" and, while there certainly was "no mess," I found I much prefer both the taste and texture of the vegetables when I good them as I usually do, in a skillet on the stove. Cooked this way they took on some of the charcoal flavor which I didn't like. And for reasons I can't explain, the vegetables just didn't have the complexity of flavor as when I cook them on the stove - perhaps it was because these were more or less steamed. It was nice to take the mess out of the kitchen so to speak, but I think I'd rather have an extra pan to wash.
