Grilled Summer Squash with Feta, Lemon & Fresh Herbs


  • 34 summer squash- any variety will work
  • 12 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt, pepper and garlic powder
  • lemon zest
  • feta cheese
  • pine nuts
  • fresh herbs- dill and chives are my favorite


  1. Wash, trim and quarter squash length wise.
  2. Put summer squash in a large ziplock bag and drizzle with olive oil. Season squash liberally with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Let sit for 15-30 minutes while you prepare a hot grill.
  3. Grill squash over medium-high heat, turning frequently, until squash is just tender and has those gorgeous grill marks.
  4. Remove from grill and, to taste, top squash with the lemon zest, crumbled feta, toasted pine nuts and whatever fresh herbs you have on hand- chives and dill are my favorite.
