Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash

During the summer, the grill is where it is at! Actually I grill year round, but I love summer grilling. I especially love grilling the fresh garden bounty!

This recipe is a super simple side dish or appetizer that can be used with a variety of vegetables. I actually learned this from Rob and was a little perturbed at myself for not thinking of it before. But he and I have two different ways of doing this. These are delicious and so, so easy!

Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash

2-3 firm zucchini and/or summer squash, unpeeled
Olive Oil
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste

Slice the zucchini/summer squash into 1/4" thick rounds. 

Rob's method: Place rounds on a wire vegetable rack. Brush olive oil on the zucchini/summer squash, season with salt and pepper, and flip the rounds. Brush olive oil on the other side and season again. Place on the grill.

My method: Place rounds in a bowl. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss them with your clean hand until all are fairly coated. Place on wire vegetable rack and place on the grill.

Neat vs. Messy. Your choice.

Place on a preheated grill over low to medium low. When the first side starts to brown a little bit or char a little bit, flip the rounds. When the second side does the same, remove them from the grill, and eat.

You do need to keep an eye on them while grilling and check them fairly often. They can burn easy if the grill is too hot. You also might need two wire grill vegetable racks.

I have used this recipe for potatoes and bell peppers with excellent results. I think the possibilities would be endless!

Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
