I love all types of squash and I love to grill. The balsamic reduction adds just the right tanginess.

This summertime summer side dish is easy to make and so tasty. Grilling the summer squash and zucchini adds a slightly smoky flavor. The balsamic sauce, though, gives them a sweet and tart punch of flavor. It's a delicious way to jazz up zucchini and squash.
