Quick, grilled vegetables are a perfect summer side dish. Summer squash is simply grilled, tossed with lemon and herbs, and finished with a light shaving of ricotta salata cheese for a creamy, salty kick in this dish.


  1. Preheat a grill to medium high. Toss 1 1/2 pounds sliced summer squash and 1 sliced onion with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill 3 to 5 minutes per side. Toss with more olive oil, the zest and juice of 1 lemon, and some chopped parsley and mint. Top with shaved ricotta salata.
