Category:Sides & Sauces
2 yellow summer squash
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 lemon, halved
1 red onion
1/2 cup feta cheese
Optional: chopped parsley and sliced cherry tomatoes as a garnish.
Oil your grill, then preheat to 400F.
Slice the ends off your summer squash, then cut into quarters the long way, so that you have 4 long strips from each squash, then add to your serving plate. Slice your red onion into 4 thick round “steaks”, which you’ll also grill and add that to your serving plate with the squash.
Drizzle squash and onion rounds with olive oil, and use a cheese grater or microplane to grate your garlic over the squash. Squeeze half your lemon over the top, and sprinkle with a couple pinches of salt and pepper. Rub this mixture over the squash and onions, and let sit for 15 minutes.
Add the onion “steaks” to the grill and let cook for about 5 minutes, flip in one piece with tongs, then add squash spears to the hot grill, sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, and let cook about 3 minutes on each side or until tender, salting and peppering a little each time. Remove everything from the grill and add back to your original serving plate. Chop grilled red onion, then toss everything again with the marinade left on the plate.
Sprinkle with feta, and then use your remaining lemon slice and salt and pepper to finish to your taste, then enjoy!
