I love this salad over sliced tomatoes with burrata or crumbled Valbreso feta, or as a complement to any protein. The herbs can be swapped for any herbs of your choice. Rotating the squash on the grill before turning allows for a little more char.
2 pounds assorted summer squash (such as zucchini and summer squash), halved lengthwise
1 large Vidalia onion, halved
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup torn fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup torn fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
Est. added sugars 0g
How to Make It
Preheat grill to high.
Coat cut sides of squash and onion with cooking spray; sprinkle evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Arrange squash and onion, cut side down, on grill; cover and grill 5 minutes. Rotate vegetables; cover and grill 3 minutes. Turn vegetables over; grill 2 minutes. Remove squash from grill. Continue grilling onion 4 minutes; remove from grill. Cool to room temperature.
Coarsely chop vegetables; place in a large bowl. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper, oil, and juice; toss to coat. Add basil, mint, and parsley; toss.
Not really a salad, so much as a side dish. I enjoyed the flavors but my family said no to the mint if I make it again. I did top this with some crumbled feta which added a nice layer of flavor to the charred squash. I only used 1/2 the onion. Would make again.
