• Perfect Grilled Zucchini

    Grilled Zucchini complemented with shallots and a hint of garlic makes a wonderful, inexpensive and healthy side dish accompaniment with any meal.
    You'll Need:
    1 shallot, thinly slice
    1 minced clove garlic
    1 large zucchini

    Wash the zucchini and slice it into 1" slices crossways & place them in a medium bowl, drizzle lightly with olive oil, add minced garlic and season with salt and pepper. Place the seasoned zucchini pieces directly on the grill and cook for 4-5 minutes, flip and cook until
    tender. (Usually about 10-12 minutes in all)

    Once they are done transfer them back to the bowl and add the thinly sliced shallot over the top, mix gently. Serve immediately.



    Other Seasoning Blends:

    Marinate the zucchini slices in 1/2 c. of any italian or vinaigrette dressing with 1 tsp minced garlic and 1 teaspoon of oregano, thyme, rosemary (or a combination of ALL!) for several hours or overnight. This is a great make-ahead marinated side dish.

    Tips for Perfect Zucchini Every time:

    1. Always cut the Zucchini in equal sized pieces, this way they cook evenly and you don't end up with some that are mushy and some that are still
      crunchy.
    2. To Create Cross-Grate Marks- simply lift the zucchini up and rotate it 180 and set it back down on the hot grill grate.
