Grilled Summer Squash with Crumbled Cheese and Pecans


1 tablespoon Dierbergs butter
½ cup Dierbergs chopped pecans
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 medium homegrown zucchini, halved lengthwise
1 medium homegrown yellow squash, halved lengthwise
3 tablespoons Dierbergs extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon freshly grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
¼ cup Dierbergs crumbled cheese (goat, feta, gorgonzola, or blue)


In small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add pecans and season with salt and pepper; cook stirring often until fragrant, about 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to plate; set aside to cool.

Brush squash with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Place on grid over medium-high heat; grill, turning frequently until tender and lightly charred, about 6 to 8 minutes. Cut into bite-size pieces. Place in serving bowl.

In 1-cup glass measure, combine remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon peel and juice, and thyme. Drizzle over veggies; toss gently until well mixed. Sprinkle cheese and pecans over top.
