Grilled Sausage and Summer Squash

Looking for a quick and easy weeknight dinner? Look no further. This is a delicious way to use up summer squash and have a flavorful one-dish meal that is easy to whip up. You can use any combination of fresh herbs that you have on hand.



Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs. zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, cut into equally sized pieces
2 tbsp plus 2 tsp olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 lb (4 links) Italian chicken sausage (I used a mixture of sweet and hot)
2-3 tbsp chopped mint
3-4 tbsp chopped parsley (or try other combinations of herbs like cilantro or basil)
1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, cut in half
2 tbsp capers
Juice of 1 lemon

Directions:
Prepare grill.

Toss squash with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper, to taste. Place in a grill pan or basket on grill. Brush sausages with 2 teaspoons olive oil and place on grill. Cook for 15-20 minutes, until squash is slightly tender and sausage is lightly browned and cooked through.

While sausages and squash are cooking, chop your herbs and olives. Place herbs, olives, and capers in a large bowl and set aside.

When sausages and squash are done cooking, remove from grill. Add the cooked squash to the bowl with the chopped herbs. Slice the sausage into 1 inch slices and add to the bowl with the squash. Toss gently to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add lemon juice, to taste, tossing to evenly coat. Serve.

This meal just screams summer. I love it! I'll have to grab a few zucchini's out of my garden and try it out.

Love the olives in this. Grilled sausage can be on my table anytime and the fact you paired it with summer squash and not peppers is a great idea
