Grilling zucchini and summer squash gives them a char-grilled flavor and makes for a perfect side dish from everything such as steaks to middle eastern dishes.

  • 2 Zucchini squash
  • 2 Yellow squash
  • 2 T. of olive oil
  • sprinkles of Creole Seasoning, to taste
  • French sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

Wash and dry the squash. Cut off the root end and cut lengthwise into quarters. Drizzle in olive oil, salt and pepper. Place on a hot grill until grill marks are developed then continue to turn every couple of minutes, until squash is fork tender, about 5-10 minutes, depending on grill temperature.  This dish can also be done in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.

You can also drizzle them with tahini sauce and a sprinkle of sumac and dried mint.
