Here is a Summer Squash how to.  

PS- Zucchini and yellow squash may be used interchangeably in recipes! 

 

Grilled Summer Squash Vinaigrette:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • 2-4 zucchini, stemmed and sliced lengthwise, into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • 2-4 yellow summer squash, stemmed and sliced lengthwise, into 1/2-inch thick slices

 Whisk together the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, cayenne and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Marinate the zucchini and yellow squash in this dressing for 10 minutes. Grill vegetables for 2 to 4 minutes per side over a hot fire and toss with enough dressing to moisten.
