Grilled Sausage with Sumer Squash

Posted in: Summer Squash, Zucchini


  • 1-1/2 lb. mixed summer squash, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 lb. Italian or Polish sausage links (chicken or pork)
  • 1/3 cup mixed herbs, such as cilantro, parsley, mint, and basil, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, halved
  • 1 Tbs. capers, rinsed
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice


Prepare a medium-hot grill fire. Toss the squash with the olive oil in a medium bowl; season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill the squash and the sausage, turning frequently, until the squash is just tender and the sausage is cooked through, 8 to 12 minutes. Cut the sausage into 1-inch chunks. Toss the squash and sausage with the herbs, olives, and capers. Season with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
