    I cut my squash in half crosswise and the in half lengthwise. Fresh pepper and Kosher salt. Simple, tasty, good.

    Simple flavors at their best. We love grilled zucchini and often prepare this as a side for many meals.

    An easy and flavorful way to use some of the plethora of seasonal zucchini while adding color to a summer meal, especially alongside fresh corn and sliced vine-ripened tomatoes. We did find it took rather more olive oil than listed, but then again dh loves 'evoo' so he may have been coating them more heavily, lol. I cut each medium-sized zuke in half lengthwise, then sliced each half (cut side down) into 1/4 inch slices. We used sea salt and freshly ground pepper; for the second batch we also added Greek oregano, thyme, and basil. It smelled wonderful on the grill (especially since we used mesquite) and tasted even better. We'll be using this a LOT, I can tell ~ thanks so much, CM! :)


I'm a full-time student at a University of Wisconsin campus, with a double major in Sociology and History. I have three adorable children, ages 9 yrs, 5 yrs, and our 2 yr old son. My nine yr old is in third grade. My 5 yr old is is in kindergarten. My littlest one is pleasantly plump. ;) We also have 2 cats. My daughter recently joined recipezaar under the name Miss Bean I also really like sewing. I make @ 1/3 of my daughters clothes. Reading is also a BIG staple in my life. One of my favorite ways to find a book is to walk into the library, pick a shelf and simply grab a book at random. I've read so many great books I probably wouldn't have found out any other way. I also like to camp and fish with my DH. He eats, sleeps and breathes fishing. He would like to one day start his own company, he hand ties and sells fishing lures locally. And he loves my cooking and will try anything at least once. ;) He works as a pressman at a local printing company. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>
