Nothing beats freshly picked grilled veggies! One of the mainstay grilling veggies is the squash. Summer squash and zucchini, to name some of the most popular.
We are very fond of the little known “Cousa” squash, it’s actually a type of zucchini from Israel and Lebanon. One thing that we believe makes it superior to it’s Italian cousins is that it stays firmer when cooked, especially grilled and possesses a pleasing nutty flavor. Yum!
