Mom Meals: Grilled Zucchini

It's entirely possible that we let our zucchini grow a day too long.

This thing is about as long as our three-month old.  There are so many recipes on these vast interwebs that will tell you how to make zucchini bread or cake, zucchini and cheese, and more.  My favorite zucchini recipe, however, is the simplest one.

  1. Zucchini
  2. 1 tbl garlic salt
  3. 1 tbl Italian seasoning
  4. 1/4 cup olive oil

  1. Slice zucchini into spears
  2. Put zucchini in a large bowl and toss with the garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and olive oil
  3. Grill (or pan fry) for 15 minutes, or until the meat of the zucchini is somewhat translucent.
In our house, my husband does the grilling, but when he sees a wealth of zucchini (or one giant zucchini) in the yard, he'll say, "Can you make YOUR zucchini?"  I'll do the seasoning, and he'll do the grilling. It's a partnership that works.  Even with just one person, though, this makes for a delicious (and filling) side dish!
