I love this Date Barbecue Dry Rub. It’s a great rub to do on some crescent moon pieces of kabocha squash, then grill them. Start on high heat to get some caramelization, then reduce the heat or move them to a cooler part of the grill and let the squash cook through. With kabocha squash, you don’t have to peel the squash, the green skin will get tender on the grill and adds flavor and color to your dish.

  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons celery salt
  • 3 tablespoons onion powder

Note: Make this simple recipe fresh and as needed with this easy process. The rub will start to cake together after sitting for awhile due to moisture in the dates.
