Marinated Zuchini and Summer Squash

(recipe, West End Farmers' Market)


Marinated Zucchini and Summer Squash is a summer recipe featured on Everyday Italian Food Show with Giada De Laurentiis


  1. 2 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  2. 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 Tbsp. minced garlic
  4. 2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme leaves
  5. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  6. ⅓ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 lb. zucchini (about 3 large), trimmed and sliced diagonally about ¼-inch thick
  8. 1 lb. yellow crookneck squash (about 3 large), trimmed and sliced diagonally about ¼-inch thick


  1. Whisk the vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, and thyme in a large bowl to blend. Season with salt and pepper. Gradually whisk in the oil. Spoon 3 tablespoons of the marinade into a small bowl. Cover and set aside.
  2. Add the zucchini and yellow squash to the remaining marinade in the large bowl and toss to coat. Transfer the mixture to a 13 by 9 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Cover and marinate at room temperature at least 3 hours or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.
  3. Prepare the barbecue for medium-high heat. Grill the vegetables until they are crisp-tender and brown, turning occasionally, about 8 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a platter. Drizzle with the reserved marinade and serve hot or at room temperature.
