  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped (or 1 teaspoon of dry)
  • 3/4 pound each of small red and white potatoes
  • 4 cobs corn, cut in half or thirds if larger
  • 1 pound assorted summer squash such as green or yellow zucchini or patty pan squash
  1. Whisk the marinade or barbecue sauce with the butter, parsley and thyme until well combined. Reserve.

As the vegetables are finished, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a large bowl of water to chill. Drain well and pat dry. Toss all the vegetables with the marinade mixture until evenly coated.
