Grilled Dijon Summer Squash -No Added Sugar or Sweeteners

The mustard in this Grilled Dijon Summer Squash side dish was a nice little change of pace. I really liked the oregano too... So I guess what I'm saying is, don't hesitate to add this one to your to-do list if you have some over-achieving zucchini to use up folks:@) I kept mine simple and only used squash and onion, you'll see the recipe recommends peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes too. The marinade doesn't call for anything sweet, so I'm thinking this would also be a nice low carb option.

If I'm making something with mustard in the title, 
I'm going to make sure it's a prominent flavor! I doubled it for this squash.
The marinade is easily cut in half for a smaller batch.
