For more tender zucchini, leave slices in the pan an extra 1 minute on each side. When the flesh starts to look translucent, the zucchini is done.
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 medium zucchini, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices
1/3 cup diced tomato
2 ounces sliced fresh mozzarella cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
How to Make It
Preheat grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl; toss well to coat. Arrange zucchini in a single layer in pan; grill 4 minutes, turning after 2 minutes.
Combine tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, and minced garlic in a bowl. Add olive oil and red wine vinegar to tomato mixture; stir gently. Divide zucchini evenly among 4 plates. Top zucchini evenly with tomato mixture.
Really liked this preparation. I grilled for 5 minutes on each side and it could've used even a couple more minutes as the zucchini was slightly under cooked. Still good though and will definitely make again.
