 Gazpacho is a Spanish classic, best made when juicy tomatoes are in season.

Easy summertime dish for the grill!


  • 1 yellow squash, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil sliced in thin ribbons
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat the grill and toss the squash with the olive oil, half of the basil (reserving some for garnish), salt and pepper.

Grill on both sides for a minute or two until fork tender.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
