Aren’t they cute!?!?!?

I am extremely lucky I live right down the street from a wonderful Farmers Market that I frequent often, from its opening in April until pumpkin season in November. I love picking out potatoes that still have the dirt on them, and the oh so delicious butter sweet corn, that grows 1/2 mile down the road from my house in their corn patch. I love going without much of a plan to see whats good that day, and when we pulled up these were right up front.  OK so I’ll admit it, half of the reason I got these at the Farmers Market was there cute factor. I couldn’t help myself, I was sent for veggies and veggies I bought. Just real cute ones so much so that I almost didn’t want to cook them up.  I did and they were delicious! They look great and grilled up nicely. These are great simply dressed with salt, pepper and some olive.

  • Green Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper 

  • Slice veggies in 1/4 thick slices, salt both sides to remove some of the moisture. 
  • Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper, adding a pinch more salt
  • Grill over medium high flame for about 4-5 minutes or until grill marks appear and Zucchini gets slightly limp.

I served these with the Lime Marinated Shrimp

 Eat and Enjoy !!!

This is my favorite way to enjoy squash-- when it's fresh from the farm it's always best to keep it simple.
