Ready in 45 minutes

Simple side dish that's a versatile accompaniment to grilled seafood, meat or poultry. Don't overcook them though; their texture is best when they are fresh and a little firm. Optional flavorings include -- lemon juice, lime juice, rosemary.


2 small Yellow Squash
1 pinch Coarse Salt
Black Pepper; freshly ground
1 tablespoon olive oil

Original recipe makes 4



Slice squash lengthwise. Pat dry with paper towel. Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper. Bring a grill to medium-high heat; turn grill down to medium, and grill for just 2-4 minutes. Move to upper rack to keep warm until ready to serve. Do not start the squash until you're about 8 minutes away from sitting down, though, as overcooked squash can be mushy in texture.
