Quick Side Dish! Grilled Zucchini

This is another recipe that isn't even really a recipe.  This post is more of a 'reminder' or to help you brainstorm; got zucchini? Need a side dish?  Just grill it!

The thing about this side dish is really all you need is oil, salt and pepper.
But if you have Italian salad dressing in the refrigerator, heck, use that.
Got another dressing?  Ok.
No dressing?  Just drizzle with oil and season with a couple items from your cupboard.  Some dried Italian Seasoning hiding up there?  Great.
Mrs. Dash? Maybe a garlic pepper blend? Go for it.

You also have options for marinating it...  or not.

It will have more of the flavor of the spices if you've used them, but it's not necessary.

So, grab a zucchini.
Slice it into 1/4" thick slices.
If you have skewers, skewer your vegetable slices on them.
If you don't, then use a piece of aluminum foil, folded over a few times to make it sturdy, or a metal grilling basket.
If you wish - slice some onions, peppers and/or whole mushrooms between the zucchini slices.  Or don't.

Not put them on a hot grill.  Cook til they are golden brown, flip and cook the second side.


Seasoned and threaded on skewers... ready to jump on the grill for a few minutes

About 4-5 minutes on each side and you are good to go!
