Description

Grilled zucchini marinated in garlic, olive oil, mint and vinegar.

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Zucchini
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Sliced Finely
  • 4 Tablespoons Vinegar (your Choice - Red Wine, Balsamic, Apple Cider...)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Mint Leaves, Finely Chopped
  • 4 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Preparation

Slice the zucchini in about 1/2″ slices. I like to do it on an angle for a larger slice.

On the BBQ or grill cook the slices until golden brown.

Layer the warm slices of zucchini in a serving dish with the sliced garlic and mint.

Drizzle over the vinegar and the olive oil.

Let it sit at room temperature for at least an hour before serving. (If you want to prepare it further ahead you can refrigerate it and then bring it back to room temperature before serving.)

Lovely alongside barbecued meats.

I was searching tonight for a recipe to use up one of the million zucchini I have in my kitchen, and found this. I didn’t have mint, so I subbed fresh thyme, and it was a HUGE hit! Thank you!! I never thought to marinade AFTER cooking!

This recipe is almost identical to the one that I posted the other day called “Fried Zucchini with Mint”–check it out!! It works great with spaghetti or by itself!! Loving all the zucchini recipes being posted!! In Italian, this is called “Zucchini alla Scapece” and it is divine!!

This is great! It is a staple when our garden is overflowing with zucchini!

I made this with balsamic vinegar and skipped the mint (didn’t have any). It was really good! Next time I’ll try it with some herbs and maybe lemon juice.

I loved this! I took the vinegar back a few notches and tried it with fresh rosemary a second time. No matter what I do, it still turns out great!
