side dish for green squash for summer bbq

Hi all... am having a bunch of family over at the end of the month for an annual bbq. mostly in-laws who think a bbq with lots of meat is a good one. so we're grilling up a big tri-tip.

I have a plethora of squash in my garden so I wanted to make an interesting side dish to go with food... something somewhat medditeranean... maybe with a little cheese? maybe a tart or quiche or strata? most everything is make ahead so far, so I could take some time with this one. I welcome any suggestions to the menu too.

here is the menu so far.. trying to focus of seasonal yummy stuff:

olive tapenade, tomato bruschetta, krissywats rosemary crackers & mild cheeses & some asiago cheese toasts. hope to serve light beer & prosecco.

roast tri tip (garlicky)
steamed corn
spinach salad w/ sun gold tomatoes, bacon, hard boiled eggs, toasted pecans w/ roasted red pepper/sherry/shallot vinaigrette. am thinking of a light pinot to serve with this.

I'm thinking peach pie or cobbler... something I can throw together easily... and bake fresh after dinner. i.e. roll pie crust and chill, same with fruit. then just slap together and bake.
