Grilled Zucchini & Summer Squash Salad

Served with a citrus splash dressing, this salad pairs great with grilled chicken breasts or steak.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grated orange rind
  • 3/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 3 oranges)
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 red onions
  • 4 zucchini, each halved lengthwise (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 4 yellow squash, each halved lengthwise (about 1 pound)
  • Cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil

 

Preparation

Combine grated orange rind, orange juice, lime juice, honey, olive oil, salt, and red pepper in a large zip-top plastic bag.

Peel onions, leaving root intact; cut each onion into 4 wedges.

Add onion, zucchini, and yellow squash to bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

Prepare grill.

Drain vegetables in a colander over a bowl, reserving marinade.

Place vegetables on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill for 8 minutes or until tender; turn and baste occasionally with 3/4 cup of the marinade.

Place the vegetables on a serving platter; sprinkle with the basil. Serve the vegetables with the remaining marinade.
