Grilled Yellow Squash & Creamy Herb Dressing

This past week my mother-in-law had back surgery. It went well and she is home from the hospital. She's getting around quite well but of course has restrictions during her recovery. This weekend we took her dinner and visited for a while. I may have gone above and beyond but really enjoyed the excuse to spend the afternoon in the kitchen.

This was our menu...

Bright's Fried Chicken **full disclaimer** NOT Homemade!
They bring this to us as a treat from time to time and we thought we would return the favor. This is from a little diner in Ephrata and it's delicious!!!

Mozzarella, Tomato, Basil Salad

Grilled Yellow Squash with Creamy Herb Dressing

Roasted Potato Hash with green peppers & onion

Peach Crumble Pie

I thought I would share what I put together for the squash since we are in that time of year when every gardener has squash coming out there ears!!!

Grilled Yellow Squash with Creamy Herb Dressing

2 medium Yellow Squash - sliced lengthwise
olive oil
garlic salt
fresh ground pepper
1/4 c. chopped herbs - I used oregano, thyme, & parsley
1/2 c. sour cream
1 T. milk

Season squash with oil, garlic salt, & pepper.
Grill squash at 400 for 5 minutes on each side or just until nice grill marks appear. Be careful not to over cook the squash. It can happen fast!

Meanwhile, combine herbs, sour cream, & milk into small container. Mix well.

Remove squash from grill.

And Enjoy!

Super easy and very tasty!!!

And here are some pictures of the pie. I don't typically make pie but I love it. I just hate the work of the crust. This recipe was pretty easy though. The crust was made in the food processor which was quick and easy. I also added some nuts to the topping which I thought added a nice flavor.

You can find the recipe in Martha Stewart's Everyday Food - July/August 2011

  1. Your Squash recipe looks amazing! I think we're going to have to try it. I'm always interested in new uses for squash-I don't eat it enough!
