Easy Grilled Summer Squash

Gar Campbell


Grilling is all about spending time with your company and enjoying the weather. So, when it comes to my food choices, I want fast and easy so there's more time to be had with my friends and family. This seasoning and cooking method can easily be adapted to just about any vegetable.

pinch tips: How to Shuck, Cook, and Cut Corn





10 Min


10 Min


2 medium
zucchini or yellow squash
3 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
2 tsp
vinegar, preferably apple cider or red wine
1 tsp
fresh thyme, removed from stems
2 pinch
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Note: I like to cut and season these before prepping the rest of my food to be grilled. That way, I don't have to worry about cross-contamination with meat. Plus, it gives the seasoning time to soak in a bit. I also make sure these are one of the last things I grill because they don't require a lot of heat, so if you're grilling on wood or charcoal they can go on as the fire is starting to die down. If you're grilling meat, you can put these on as soon as you take your meat off. By the time these are done, it should have allowed enough time for your meat to properly rest, which means everything is done at the same time!
Rinse off squash and quarter lengthwise, place on a large plate skin side down
Drizzle squash with olive oil, honey, and vinegar.
Sprinkle with thyme and paprika, then salt and pepper to taste.
Place on grill skin side down over medium heat and turn occasionally. Cook until tender, about ten minutes.
