Grilled Squash with Herbs

I hesitated to share this "recipe" at first but then I thought hey, the first time I ever wanted to grill squash, I had to look up "how to grill squash" because I wanted to do it right, so hopefully it will be helpful. There is always somebody, somewhere just learning to cook.

Besides y'all. Doesn't that just look scrumptious? It's really quite simple, but along the way I've discovered a couple of helpful tips.

1. Slice the squash thick. As thick as you think, go even thicker.

2. Use a quality extra virgin olive oil.

3. Along with salt and pepper, add herbs. I always have dried on hand so that's what I commonly use. Fresh is good too of course.

4. Works great on either indoor or outdoor grills, though if you are cooking over direct heat outdoors, keep an eye on them!

Here's the ratios and what I do.
