Grilled Yellow Squash with Fresh Dill Vinaigrette and Feta

I’m not sure what the weather is like in your neck of the woods, but here in California it’s definitely grilling season.  While I’m a big fan of grilled meat, I think I might like grilled squash even more.  Usually I do nothing more than dress some zucchini slices with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper before tossing them on the grill, but I wanted to do something a little different with the gorgeous yellow squash I picked up at the Farmer’s Market last week.  I hope you enjoy it!

Grilled Yellow Squash with Fresh Dill Vinaigrette and Feta

4 – 6 small yellow squash (or zucchini)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons sherry vinegar (or substitute your favorite vinegar)
2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 shallot, sliced
salt and pepper to taste
4 – 6 small yellow squash (or zucchini)
crumbled feta cheese

1. Preheat gas grill or prepare coals for charcoal grill
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and chopped dill.  Slowly whisk in olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir in shallot slices;  set aside.
3. Slice squash in half, lengthwise, then add them all to the bowl of vinaigrette.  Toss to coat.
4. Remove squash from marinade and grill over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes on each side until grill marks appear and the squash is just tender.  Remove to a plate, spoon remaining vinaigrette over the squash and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.  Serve immediately.
