Zesty Citrus-Grilled Zucchini

BY ELIZABETH BORELLI

This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy garden-fresh zucchini.  More of a simple preparation style than a recipe, I suggest making more than you may eat in one sitting.  Chilled Zesty Citrus-Grilled Zucchini makes a wonderful addition to green salads, quinoa or rice dishes you would like to embellish.

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 or 4 whole organic zucchinis, split lengthwise, each half cut into long triangular strips (see image for example)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic power

Pre-hear your grill to a medium temperature (low flame), ten minutes prior to cooking.  Place zucchini strips in a flat-bottomed baking dish with sides to contain liquid.  Combine marinade ingredients in a cup or small bowl, then pour over the zucchini and toss to coat. Place zucchini strips on the grill crosswise to rack so they won’t fall in.  Cook 3-5 minutes each side until browned but not burnt.  Remove from heat after all sides are browned.  Serve warm or chilled.
