Grilled Butternut Squash — A Summery Solution For a Fall Favorite!

1 comment

One of my favorite people recently gifted us with a homegrown butternut squash.  We’ve made some good roasted butternut squash and a pretty good butternut squash soup, but both are more Fall dishes, and this was the first week of August!  So we did a little online research looking for a recipe that didn’t involve having the oven on or simmering something on the stove all evening, and found a nifty recipe for Garlic-Balsamic Grilled Butternut!

Since I like grilling, and we both like garlic and balsamic vinegar, this seemed like a perfect recipe.  So on a day when I was smoking a couple of chickens, I did this recipe as a side (with a little less oil and a little more garlic), and it was remarkably easy, and paired very well with it.

VERY easy ingredient list.
Squash is sliced, and marinade is mixed.
Mixture is marinating…
Squash on the grill.
That’s about the level of grill marks you’re looking for.
Toss the squash in a bowl with the remaining marinade, let it sit, and serve!
