Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    No cumin or peppered seasoned salt in your spice rack? Use 1 teaspoon taco seasoning mix in place of the cumin and peppered seasoned salt in this Grilled Summer Squash recipe.
  • tip 2
    Swap out the yellow squash in favor of zucchini or a mix of yellow squash and zucchini.
  • tip 3
    Add any leftover veggies to a salad or grain bowl the next day. Cover the grilled veggies and refrigerate up to 3 days.
