DIRECTIONS

  • Cut zucchini lengthwise into 1/3-inch thick slices; place slices in a colander, sprinkle with salt and set aside to drain for 2 hours.
  • In a large saucepan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat; gently cook the zucchini slices until golden brown on both sides (about 3 minutes per side), being careful not to burn them (you will probably have to do this in more than 1 batch).
  • In another saucepan, bring the vinegar and sugar to a boil over high heat; add a pinch of pepper flakes and a pinch of salt.
  • Place the zucchini slices flat in a shallow bowl, with the garlic slices, basil and parsley scattered throughout.
  • Pour the vinegar over the zucchini slices and let marinate, covered and refrigerated, for at least 24 hours before serving.
