Grilled Squash and Zucchini with Dill and Feta

Grilled Squash with Dill and Feta

Sometimes, it’s really the simple things that are the best — the things that taste good, are good for you and take all of a few minutes to make.  Today was a day for only simple things.  Marc made some delicious glazed and grilled chicken (white meat for me, thighs for him), and we both threw together this grilled squash on the side.  I seriously prepped this entire side dish in the time that it took Marc to walk the dog.  Cooking it took a smidge longer than it would on a regular gas or charcoal grill, but since it’s a rainy and chilly day, we stuck with our Cuisinart Griddler.  This was a nice addition to our meal, and we made enough for each of us to take extra squash (and chicken) to work tomorrow.
