Cook time: 6-8 minutes
Yield: about 2 cups
1 fresh yellow squash, large enough to yield about 1 1/2 -2 cups diced
1/2 tsp. salt
2-3 TB olive oil
2 TB balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, crushed
several sprigs cilantro, chopped
several sprigs dill, chopped

Slice the squash lengthwise into strips about 1/3" thick, and layer in a baking dish, sprinkling a little salt on each layer. Set aside for 30 minutes.
Preheat your grill. In a bowl, mix the olive oil, vinegar, and garlic. Pour off any water released from the squash, and pour on the garlic oil mixture,turning to coat. Grill the squash for about 3 minutes per side, or until softened. Remove to a cutting board and dice into pieces about 1/4 inch across.
Scrape squash into a bowl, and toss with the cilantro, dill, and black pepper.
This is tasty as a bruschetta or pizza topping.
