Who says a Caprese salad has to be made with tomatoes only? This recipe calls for yellow summer squash, quickly grilled and mixed with tomatoes and basil for a delightful take on the summertime favorite.

Ingredients
3 pounds of yellow summer squash (5 medium), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
5 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
1 pint of grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup of fresh small basil leaves

Directions
Brush both sides of squash slices with 3 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
For a charcoal grill, grill squash, cut sides up, on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals about 6 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place squash on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
On a serving platter, arrange squash, tomatoes, and basil. Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over vegetables just before serving.
