Very good grilled zucchini recipe. Quick, easy, tasty...this may become my quick go-to for a quick grilled zucchini side dish. I should point out that I didn't have any dried mint and added a sprinkling of fresh grated Parmesan as well.
Prep: 15 minutes; Cook: 6 minutes. If you can't find yellow zucchini at the grocery store, you can order it from a specialty-produce purveyor (like Frieda's, www.friedas.com) or use yellow squash.
