This is a tasty way to use up all the yellow squash you have pouring out of your garden every summer. I also do this same thing with zucchini.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the grill for medium heat.

    Advertisement
  • Cut the squash horizontally into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick slices so that you have nice long strips that won't fall through the grill.

  • Heat olive oil in a small pan, and add garlic cloves. Cook over medium heat until the garlic starts to sizzle and become fragrant. Brush the slices of squash with the garlic oil, and season with salt and pepper.

  • Grill squash slices for 5 to 10 minutes per side, until they reach the desired tenderness. Brush with additional garlic oil, and turn occasionally to prevent sticking or burning.

This was excellent. I cut up the squash and put it in foil and grilled it with the olive oil and garlic. It was easy to just flip the foil pack rather than each individual squash piece. Turned out excellent! Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

These look great in the picture but stuck to the tinfoil I set them on so they wouldn't fall through the slits in the grill and cooked VERY quickly. Half of them burnt from the time I walked into the house to grab a set of tongs and came back out. Definitely don't slice too thin if cooking out on a bbq! Read More

I thought this was good and will use it again. I put the veggies in a grilling basket, after seasoning them. I found this easier, as I could just turn the entire basket rather than individual veggies. I also added additional veggies (onion and sweet potato). I used this as a side with grilled steaks. Delicious. I will use the receipe again. Read More

I tried this recipe and it is really good, the oil baste is the best, plus I added some more seasoning to flavor it just a tad more. Read More

OMGOODNESS!!!! This is absolutely wonderful. I was originally looking for a basic recipe to oven roast veggies and decided to try this. I cut the cloves of garlic in half lengthwise, fried them in the oil until fragrant, and then followed the recipe with the exception of using green beans and pre-steamed carrots along with the yellow squash. I put them in a casserole dish and continued to roast them in the oven until done. The end result is so incredible that my "I hate carrots and squash" 6 year old asked for more! The garlic lended a nutty flavor and the whole dish is simple yet amazing. DEFINITELY a keeper! Thank you for the soon to be staple in our house! Read More

Quick easy and delicious this is just as tasty prepared on an indoor grill. I used zucchini as well as yellow squash which was a nice color contrast on the plate. While hubby prefers his as is I like mine sprinkled with grated Parmesan. Read More

This recipe was simple and delicious. The only thing I changed was to add a bit of balsamic vinegar to the basting mixture. My husband even ate two slices and he hates squash. Read More

I have tried this recipe many times while grilling at home. But this time I wanted this for a grill out and wanted to add some bite to the dish. So I sliced the 3 zucchini, 3 squash, 2 small onions into thin rounds and julienned 4 jalapenos. Put this into a gallon size plastic bag with the garlic, olive oil, and salt to marinade. Boy-oh-boy, this was the hit of the evening and even had many children asking me to give their moms the recipe. Only one regret – I should have made more. :-) Read More
