Grilled Zucchini and Squash

Aromatic and slightly pungent, basil makes a good companion to a grilled zucchini and squash side dish. Its delicate leaves are best used raw or added at the end of the cooking process.

  • 2 yellow squash (about 1 pound)

  • 2 yellow bell peppers, seeds and ribs removed

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced fresh basil


  1. Heat grill to medium. Slice zucchini and squash 1/2 inch thick diagonally. Quarter bell peppers.

  2. In a large bowl, toss vegetables with oil; season with salt and pepper.

  3. Grill vegetables until tender, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

  4. Return vegetables to bowl; toss with basil.
