Fresh, yellow squash is grilled to perfection then drizzled with a bright, lemon chive vinaigrette for a delicious summer side dish.

Last week I stopped by a local farm stand to pick up some fresh strawberries and was happy to see they had other vegetables for sale.  I bought some lettuce and could not resist the squash.  I love yellow squash and it brings back so many great memories of when I was a little girl.  Stewed squash was always on the table at Sunday lunch.  It was thick, buttery and tasted like summer.  Of course, when I saw those bright yellow beauties, I had to have some.

The bunch that I picked up is some of the first of the season and is more like baby squash so, I decided to grill them and add a little additional flavor with a lemon, chive vinaigrette.  They turned out great with a fresh, sweet flavor.  I grilled them just long enough to keep a little crunch and along with the tartness of the lemon and the garlic flavor of the chives, all I can say is, welcome to summer!
