Ingredients

  • 2 acorn squashes (about 3 lb/1.5 kg total)
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage (or 1/2 tsp/2 ml dried, crumbled)
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic

Method

Cut each squash in half lengthwise; scoop out seeds. Cut halves crosswise into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; place in large bowl. Add half each of the oil, salt and pepper and toss to coat.

Place squash on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender and browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer to serving platter.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together sage, vinegar, mustard, garlic and remaining oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle over squash.
