Grilled Zucchini

Here's another great recipe for zucchini. If you are one of those people with an overabundance of zucchini from your garden in the summer this is just another option instead of zucchini bread. If your zucchini have grown to one of those monsters about 3-4 inches in diameter, you don't need to slice on the diagonal to keep it from falling through the grill grate.

adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen

4 zucchini, cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch slices
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. oregano (optional)
1/4 tsp. basil (optional)
salt & pepper to taste

Combine dressing, garlic powder, oregano, and basil in a large Ziploc bag. Add zucchini, seal bag, and shake to coat. Marinate for 30 minutes or more.

Preheat grill to med-high heat. Grill zucchini slices 3-4 minutes then turn and grill another 3-4 minutes or until desired tenderness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.
