Chimichurri Dressing
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2½ teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1½ teaspoons honey
  • ¾ teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tablespoon red onion chopped
  • 1½ teaspoons fresh thyme
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Seasoning Paste
  • ¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons black pepper
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt


  1. To make the chimichurri dressing, combine the olive oil, vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, parsley, red onion, thyme, garlic, salt and black pepper in a food processor. Blend until the ingredients are coarsely chopped.
  2. To make the seasoning paste, combine the olive oil, brown sugar, black pepper and salt in a small bowl.
  3. Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® Charcoal with Mesquite and preheat the grill to 350 to 400°F.
  4. Apply the seasoning paste lightly and evenly to each butternut squash slice.
  5. Grill the butternut squash slices over direct heat until they soften and start to char, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and arrange the slices in an 8-inch round serving pan.
  6. Drizzle the chimichurri dressing over the grilled squash. Sprinkle with goat cheese and serve warm.
