Now, let's get to the grilling part. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. You want the grill hot enough to sear the vegetables and create those beautiful grill marks, but not so hot that they burn. Place the zucchini and squash slices directly on the grill grates and grill for about 3-4 minutes per side. You'll know they're done when they're tender and have those enviable grill marks.
