Easy Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash


One of my absolute favorite parts of summer is grilled food. There is something about eating char that is amazing. Hotdogs, chicken, veggies, and even fruit. Grilling makes everything better. Eating burned marshmallows is my favorite part of a smore.

With summer coming to a close, vegetables are in a abundance in the stores and gardens. My mom and I recently discovered the magic of grilled zucchini and summer squash. It is one of the best ways to eat it, goes perfect with any barbecue and is quick and simple to serve up.

To start slice your squash into slices and drizzle with olive oil, crushed garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Then let it marinade for an hour or two to enhance the flavor.

Once the grill is warmed up, lay on the grill and grill for 6 minutes on each side or until desired char level is achieved.

Plate up and enjoy this delicious side!
