How to Make the Best Grilled Zucchini and Squash

Grilled zucchini is a simple, quick, & easy side dish with the spice of fresh garlic and the sweetness of zucchini or yellow squash that is cooked to perfection on the grill.

  • 2 large zucchini We use them straight out of the garden when we can.
  • 2 large yellow squash
  • 1 large onion
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2-3 cloves garlic pressed with a garlic press


  • Chop the squash and peel and chop the onion. Toss in olive oil to coat.
  • Place all of the chopped veggies into a grill basket. Grill over medium-high heat until onions are crisp-tender.
  • Let the veggies cool a little, then toss with garlic and spices of your choice. We like just plain garlic, and we also like to sprinkle on Pampered Chef spice rubs.


Alternate method, especially if you want your grilled zucchini to look like mine in the photo:
  1. Slice zucchini and squash into thick slices using a mandoline slicer.
  2. Brush each side of each plank with olive oil, not enough to make it dripping, but enough to make it moist.
  3. Place squash directly on the grill grates over medium-high heat. Aim for 5 minutes on each side.
