Italian-style salad dressing
Very Good!! I just halved the zucchini lengthwise, and added some salt and pepper after grilling. Cutting it the long way really saved on time, plus made it easier to move on and off the grill. Thanks!
My husband and I both thought these tasted like warm pickles. I kept my opinion to myself to see if it was just me, but then he pushed his portion onto my plate and said the same thing!
It's simple, fast and gives the squash a good flavor. I pan fried instead of grilled and it works just as well.
The first time I tried this I added a little Parmesean and it was fantastic! I have a vegetable basket for the barbeque grill which made it easy to flip them. Plus, it makes the taste amazing! The second time I tried this, I added too much dressing and it overpowered the zucchini, so be careful on your proportions. A favorite in my home!
We make this by cutting the Zucchini into spears and letting it marinate in a Italian dressing bath for 3 days, yes 3 days! It sounds ridiculous but it makes the Zucchini much better and zingy, while the grill marks add a caramelized type of sweetness. I wasn't a fan of Zucchini until I had it like that! Really good for low carbers.
YUM-YUM! At my local farmers market, I found what they call an 8-ball....no, not that kinda 8-ball...It is a zucchini that they said "has gone wild". It looks like a small pumpkin, meaning it is round, which made for perfect larger slices to grill! This is a simple side that is sure to please, as Linda put it, what's not to like about it?? Thanks Nancy!
5 stars for flavor and easiness. I sliced my zucchini in spears (they looked like pickles), and after bringing them inside, I topped them with some grated parmesan cheese while still hot. The parmesan on top is a wonderful addition!
I don't usually care for Italian dressing, but I love Zucchini so I thought that I'd give it a try. Boy, am I ever glad that I did.
Thanks for sharing it with us Nancy.
