Italian Marinated Zucchini

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by ChefRed

Delcious side dish with grilled meats. Serve cold. My Grandmother "Nonna" used to make these, mom still does and I adore the taste of zucchini, vinegar & garlic. Mint leaves are needed to give it a very subtle taste, will not taste the same without them.

Excellent flavor and very moreish! Great way to use mint from the garden. I use a mixture of red wine and sherry vinegars with a little honey cane sugar for a sweeter taste.
