Grilled Summer Squash

Zucchini and yellow crookneck squash are prolific plants. Making grilled summer squash is a good way to make use of the bountiful harvest you'll be getting from your garden this summer.

There are a few varieties of summer squash to consider for your grill. Zucchini squash are the least flavorful type, having a deep green skin and a cylindrical shape. Straight yellow and yellow crookneck squash have more flavor than their green cousins. The crookneck variety can have a bumpy skin. Scalloped squash, also known as buttercup or patty pan squash have a lot of flavor. They are whitish in color, with a scalloped fringe around their edge

Any of the three are great for grilling. Here's an easy recipe for grilled summer squash.

Ingredients:

Two pounds of summer squash
Vegetable oil
Salt and pepper, to taste

Slice the squash diagonally into one-half inch thick slices. Coat both sides lightly with oil and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side over medium high heat. These make a great side dish to go with grilled chicken or steak.
