These zucchini pancakes are wonderful. So crisp, tender, flavorful, bright and fresh. I added a little minced onion to the mix. All the flavors really popped. I garnished these tasty treats with thick Greek yogurt and freshly ground black pepper, Quick and really easy to make. Loved the fresh mint in these pancakes. Made for ZWT9.

We love 'kolokithokeftedes' and this version is quite authentic. I did add one small, finely-minced onion to the mixture. The feta and mint make it uniquely greek and so good. Also served with tzatziki to scoop on or dip into.
