Grilled Summer Vegetables

This Giada veggie dish was a great addition to the grilled thighs in the post below. I set them up to marinate all night, and they were awesome.

They probably could have used another couple of minutes on the grill, but there were a couple of bees buzzing around me and I wasn't about to stick around longer than I had to.

  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound zucchini (about 3 large), trimmed and sliced diagonally about 1/4-inch thick
  • 1 pound yellow crookneck squash (about 3 large), trimmed and sliced diagonally about 1/4-inch thick

(I ended up using only one of each veggie because I didn't want a ton leftover.)

Whisk the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and thyme in a large bowl to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in the oil. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the marinade into a small bowl. Cover and set aside. Add the zucchini and yellow squash to the remaining marinade in the large bowl and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Cover and marinate at room temperature at least 3 hours or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day. (I did overnight.)

Prepare the barbecue for medium-high heat. Grill the vegetables until they are crisp-tender and brown, turning occasionally, about 8 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a platter. Drizzle with the reserved marinade and serve hot or at room temperature.
