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.
