DIY Grilled Summer Squash with Tamari and Honey

Summertime means grill time! But it doesn’t always have to be meat, meat and more meat! I picked up these lovely and colorful Summer squash from my local farmer’s market and grilled them up, shish-kabob-style, with a tamari and honey glaze. Garnish them with some black pepper and chopped chives and you’ll be apt to say, “Burger what?”
