Grilled Squash & Garlic Bread

Makes 6 servings

A spectacular light dinner, appetizer or midnight snack, Grilled Squash & Garlic Bread is the perfect refreshing summer dish. Grilled summer squash, zucchini and ricotta cheese provide a creamy texture, layered on top of crunchy, golden-brown ciabatta bread with a garlic rub. Drizzle with olive oil and zest a lemon on top to add just a touch of tang.



3 small zucchinis
2 summer squash
¼ cup olive oil, divided
½ tbsp. salt
½ tbsp. pepper
2 scallions, sliced
1 large loaf ciabatta bread (or your favorite type of crusty bread)
1 large garlic clove
2 tbsp. ricotta cheese
1 lemon



1. Preheat the grill to medium.
2. Slice the zucchinis and summer squash in half to grill. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, season with the salt and pepper and grill until charred and tender, 3 minutes on each side. Toss scallions with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and grill, turning occasionally, until they soften; transfer to a cutting board and cut into pieces.
3. Slice the ciabatta bread and grill the slices until golden, 1 minute on each side. Cut the garlic clove in half and rub the bread slices with the cut side, then drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the bread.
4. Spread ricotta on each bread slice, then top with zucchini, squash and scallions. Zest the lemon on top and drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Serve immediately.
