Servings: 4

This is a lovely summer salad or side dish. It is easy to prepare and full of flavor.


  • 4 medium sized summer squash, sliced lengthwise into 1/4" thick pieces
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

  1. Heat the grill on high.
  2. Toss the squash with the olive oil and salt and pepper and place on the grill.
  3. Once you have nice markings on one side, turn the squash over and quickly cook on the other side (Don't cook too long or it will get mushy.)
  4. Remove the squash from the grill and arrange on a platter.
  5. Drizzle the squash with the lemon juice, olive oil, lemon zest, chili flakes, mint, goat cheese, and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400o F.

  8. Remove prosciutto and drain on paper towels.
  9. Crumble the prosciutto and sprinkle over the platter of squash.
