    2 tablespoons grated orange rind
    3/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 3 oranges)
    1/2 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)
    3 tablespoons honey
    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    2 red onions
    4 zucchini, each halved lengthwise (about 1-1/4 pounds)
    4 yellow squash, each halved lengthwise (about 1 pound)
    Cooking spray
    3 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh basil


1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag. Peel
onions, leaving root intact; cut each onion into 4 wedges. Add onion,
zucchini, and yellow squash to bag. Seal and marinate in refrigerator
1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

2. Prepare grill.

3. Drain vegetables in a colander over a bowl, reserving marinade.
Place vegetables on a grill rack coated with cooking spray, and grill
for 8 minutes or until tender; turn and baste occasionally with 3/4
cup of the marinade. Place the vegetables on a serving platter;
sprinkle with the basil. Serve the vegetables with the remaining
marinade. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 zucchini halves, 2
squash halves, 2 onion
wedges, and 3 tablespoons citrus dressing).

  • I cooked this on my grill pan, and I ended up letting the marinade drip and it made a huge mess. Next time, I'll save the marinade for the end. Also, I sliced the squash about a half inch thick and it took forever to cook. Next time, I'll slice it much thinner. Other than that, very delicious. - 10/3/12
