Grilled Summer Squash with Lemony Basil Parmesan Dressing 


4 medium-large zucchini, trimmed, halved lengthwise

4 medium-large yellow crookneck squash, trimmed, halved lengthwise

5 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup chopped fresh basil

1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 1 ounce)

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice



Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Place zucchini and crookneck squash on large baking sheet; brush all over with 3 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill vegetables until tender and brown, turning occasionally, about 10 minutes. Transfer to plate and cool.

Cut vegetables diagonally into 1-inch-wide pieces. Place in large bowl. Add basil, Parmesan cheese, lemon juice and remaining 2 tablespoons oil and toss to blend. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve. Or use grilled squash as topping for pizza, filling for sandwiches and paninis, or as a layer in lasagna!  The squash possibilities are endless!


Happy summer eating from your farm!
