Grilled Zucchini

Grilled Zucchini or Summer Squash

Grilled Zucchini, or any summer squash, is a quick and delicious side dish that everyone is sure to enjoy, and incredibly easy to make. Three simple ingredients will make this flavourful recipe pair perfectly with your favourite BBQ’d meats (I recommend chicken), or a great addition to a platter of grilled vegetables (eggplant, tomatoes, green onions, green beans, or what’s new at the market or coming out of your garden), or serve it year-round next to your favourite main dish.
