Serves 6

3 medium yellow squash
3 medium zucchini
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch basil, roughly chopped
Salt and pepper

Prepare the grill for high heat. Cut the vegetables horizontally into 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick slices so that you have nice long strips that won't fall through the grill.

Put the oil and basil in a tall cup. Blend using a hand mixer. (If you don’t have a hand mixer, use a food processor or a blender.)

Brush the vegetable slices with the basil oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill slices for 5 to 7 minutes per side, until they reach the desired tenderness. Brush with additional oil, and turn occasionally to prevent sticking or burning.
