This is the easiest side dish you will ever make! Everyone we have ever served this to cannot believe there are only 2 ingredients. Even non-zucchini lovers will come back for seconds. We use the exact same recipe for asparagus.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 zucchini (green or yellow, 8-inch)
  • 13 cup zesty Italian dressing


  1. Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/2 to 3/8 inch thick slices.
  2. Place in oval casserole dish and add dressing.
  3. Flip slices around to coat with dressing.
  4. Cook directly on outdoor barbecue on medium heat for approximately 8-10 minutes or until zucchini is golden with grill marks.
  5. Baste frequently with leftover dressing, turning often.

This is so very good! I loved it. I had a very large homegrown zucchini that I sliced on the bias and I used a tomatoey Italian dressing. I let the zucchini sit in the dressing for a little while before I barbequed it. I cooked it a bit longer than necessary, perhaps, but I enjoyed the lightly burnt crusty parts. It was really very easy, fast and delicious! However, my non-zucchini-eating husband and son didn't like it. Oh what a shame....more for me! :-) I'm uploading a picture, too, so you can see how pretty the grill mark look!

Very easy with a subtle taste. We didn't cook as long as in instructions as they were done sooner.

This was great. The only zucchini I have ever liked was cut thin and fried or in zucchini bread. I just cooked one zucchini as a sample, convinced before I ever put it on the grill that no one would like it, boy was I wrong. My inlaws came for dinner and everyone only got a taste which definately wasn't enough. Thanks so much for such a great recipe it is definately a keeper!
