Total Time: 15 minutes
- 4 medium zucchini or other summer squash
- About 1/3 cup olive oil
- Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat (you can hold your hand about an inch above the grill for 3 to 4 seconds).
- Trim the zucchini and cut it in half lengthwise. Lay it on a large baking sheet or tray. Brush the cut sides with olive oil and sprinkle them with salt. Lay the zucchini oiled-side-down on the grill. Close the lid if using a gas grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 5 minutes.
- Brush other sides with oil and sprinkle them with salt. Turn the zucchini halves over, close the lid on a gas grill and cook until grill marks appear on the other side and the zucchini is very tender, about 5 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
Makes 4 to 8 servings Grilled Zucchini.
