Pesto makes a delightfully fresh marinade for thinly sliced zucchini and grape tomatoes. Plus, it is a no cook recipe making it a perfect summer dish for when it is too hot to do anything but drink spiked lemonade.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, combine pesto, oil and lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Arrange zucchini slices, overlapping slightly, on a platter. Top with grape tomatoes and feta and drizzle pesto mixture on top. Cover and let stand at least 1 hour for flavors to blend.
  3. Meanwhile, sit on the porch with a fly swatter and put some Grey Goose in your lemonade.

I have made this twice in the past week! Very good, easy recipe and makes a great presentation! Made for Think Pink 2112.

This was incredible! I've tried to find a recipe with zucchini that my 4 & 6 year old boys will eat and enjoy. This recipe sounded wonderful, and I had pesto on hand, and grape tomatoes galore from my garden, so I decided to try it. It was a raging success. Both boys asked for 2nd's and 3rd's = Major success!!!! Added bonus was the easiness of preparation and no cooking needed! I agree with other posts about how gorgeous and colorful it is too! Will be a family favorite for sure!
