Grilled veggies are one of my favorite summer sides and fridge staples. Usually I like to make up a big batch on Sundays to have throughout the week. They make the perfect addition to salads, sandwiches, or quesadillas and are delicious for dipping. However one person can only eat so much grilled zucchini, so lately I have been experimenting with throwing new veggies on the grill and this simple grilled squash dish is quickly rising to the top as a new favorite. The heartiness of the squash makes it perfect for the grill and it’s earthy flavor means it pairs well with almost any meal. Normally I try to pick something that complements my main dish or just reach for my favorite blend of brown sugar, spicy ancho chile powder, and a touch of cinnamon.
