Grilled Vegetables with Simple Mustard Vinaigrette

This is a quick and easy way to dress up your grilled vegetables.  The vinaigrette adds some moisture to the vegetables (which is surprisingly welcome) with a nice dose of acidity from the lemon juice.  It’s really quite pleasant.  A picture can be found here.  And here’s the recipe:

Grilled Vegetables with Simple Mustard Vinaigrette, from this recipe at Epicurious

6 medium yellow squash and/or green zucchini (3 pounds)

Kosher salt and pepper

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons coarse-grain mustard

1/4 teaspoon sugar

Prepare a grill.  Wash vegetables, cut off the stem end, and halve lengthwise.  Toss with 2 T of olive oil and some Kosher salt and pepper. 

Mix together the lemon juice, mustard, and sugar.  Whisk in the remaining 2 T of olive oil. 

Grill vegetables until tender, turning occasionally.  Serve immediately, passing the vinaigrette on the side.
