Step 1

Heat up the Arteflame grill. Pour a generous amount of oil over the side plancha over medium-high heat. Grill the onion, stirring often, until lightly charred and softened but not falling apart, 5–7 minutes. Add red pepper flakes and toss to combine. Remove from heat and mix in lime juice and honey in a bowl. Let cool, then mix in lime zest.

Step 3

Toast hazelnuts on the medium high heat area of the grill, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, 6–8 minutes. Let cool; coarsely chop.

Step 4

Toss squash and ¼ cup oil in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill and allow to caramelize, undisturbed, until tender, 15–20 minutes.

Step 5

Return squash to bowl; add hazelnuts, parsley, mint, marjoram, and spicy onions, and toss to combine.

Step 6

Transfer squash mixture to a large serving platter, crumble goat cheese over, and drizzle with remaining 2 Tbsp. oil.
