This is the way my Dad cooked summer squash on the grill. I have modified it a bit over the years, but it continues to be a tasty-easy no-mess way to cook yellow squash and zucchini on the grill to go with your burgers, steaks, or pork.

  • Place the yellow squash, zucchini, tomatoes, onion, and garlic in the center of one sheet of aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place second sheet of foil on top of vegetables. Fold edges together tightly to seal packet.

  • Place packet on the top rack of the preheated grill. Cook for 15 minutes. Turn packet over and continue to cook until vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Carefully cut an "X" into top of packet and pour vegetables and juices into serving bowl. Garnish with parsley.

Cook's Note

For a spicier option, add 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon of oregano, and 1 tablespoon of hot sauce (I use Franks(R) Red Hot(R)). This adds a slightly different color along with a robust flavor to the squash.
