Grilled Yellow Squash with Fresh Dill & Feta

Not sure where I found this, but I love it! So good to throw some homegrown squash on the BBQ--and then snaz it up a bit with herbs and feta. So good!

Grilled Yellow Squash with Fresh Dill & Feta

4-6 small yellow squash (or zucchini)
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp sugar
1 1/2 Tblspn sherry vinegar (or substitute your favorite vinegar)
2 Tblspn fresh chopped dill
1/4 c. EVOO
1 shallot, sliced
salt & pepper to taste
crumbled feta cheese

1. Preheat gas grill or prepare coals for charcoal grill
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and chopped dill. Slowly whisk in olive oil, season with salt and pepper to taste, then stir in shallot slices; set aside.
3. Slice squash in half lengthwise, then add them all to the bowl of vinaigrette. Toss to coat.
4. Remove squash from marinade and grill over medium-high heat for a couple of minutes on each side, until grill marks appear and the squash is just tender. Remove to a plate, spoon remaining vinaigrette over the squash, and sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.
Serve immediately.
