Succulent, is all I can say.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice zucchini lengthwise.

  6. Serve with grilled polenta, fresh tomatoes, and a salad if serving vegetarian.

Lovely recipe for the abundant zucchini we are having in the garden right now. Added a sprinkling of garlic powder before cooking, and a little chopped basil after. Our zucchini were done in just under 10 minutes (gas grill). Thank you Sweetiebarbara, this has become a summertime staple at our house.
