      Fabulous zucchini recipe. I sliced into circles, grilled with vidalia onion and then followed the tossing directions. Everyone loved - even my 3 year old ate a plate of it! Thanks so much for sharing!

      Any recipe from Bon Appetit is bound to be good, and this was no exception. I did add 2 cloves of minced garlic to the olive oil. Even my roommate, who professes to hate squash, loved this dish.

      I made this tonight with grilled chicken. My 2 year old even gobbled it up. The only thing I did differently was slicing them into discs instead of lengthewise. Then I put both the basil and discs in a foil pouch on the grill. Served it warm, yummy!
