Healthy and Easy Grilled Squash

Before I have to winterize my garden, I wanted to share this healthy and easy grilled squash recipe that we’ve been making all summer. It’s the textbook definition of delicious and it’s so simple to throw together.

You can use zucchini or yellow squash. I like to use a combination of both. All you do is slice your squash, drizzle with olive oil and spices. I’m partial to M Salt but you can make your own combination of salt, pepper and garlic.

You cook the squash on the grill for 5 minutes per side. The heat of the grill sears the squash and imparts a sweet and smoky flavor. And of course, you could grill other vegetables at the same time. I love grilled onions and peppers and you should definitely check out my easy no-mess grilled corn recipe.
