Delicious! Super simple & great for a budget! I used fresh tomatoes and fresh basil. I also split the recipe in half & it worked beautifully. Made as is. Will definitely be making this often for years to come. Thanks for sharing! [Made & Reviewed for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag]

This is just what I was looking for: an easy, low fat side dish that would use up some of my numerous zucchinis. It made enough for lunch for two tomorrow, always a bonus.

Very Italian flavored zucchini. I loved the onions with it, and this would be a perfect side to any Italian dinner. This was really good and the dressing did give it a nice flavor, but I found I had to add a little tomato paste to thicken it up and give it just that little something more. I'm sure this was just my own taste, as I seem to like my foods very savory, spicy, and chock-full of flavor. Nice and easy to make... a plus in my book!
