    Truly excellent. Substituted fresh basil for the mint because we've gots tons of basil now. Recommend.

    Delicious!! I am always looking for new zucchini recipes as it is so low in calories and fat. This is so simple and the best part is that it is made ahead of time which is great if you are having company. Definitely a keeper!!

    I didn't add the mint, but it was still one of the best ways I've ever had zucchini. Next time I'll use a little less vinegar. I used vidalia onions-grilled, crisp and sweet, they were so good.

    I often find zucchini recipes underwhelming. This is the exception. Red wine vinegar and parm are a great combo and the mint adds a unique touch. Unlike most side dishes, leftovers work for lunch.

    Wonderful!! What a great summer side dish. Used Zucchini & Yellow squash. Only needed 1/4 tsp. each of salt & pepper sprinkled on veggies before grilling. Don't need to add extra 1/4 tsp. at end. Used Balsamic Vinegar instead of Red Wine Vinegar. Wasn't sure about mint, but we really thought it was great & added to flavor. Easy & delicious!!

    Just wanted to recommend this recipe even if you DON'T have a grill. I made it exactly as described, except I broiled the sliced zucchini and red onion in my oven till the veggies were browned and tender. (Took slightly longer under my broiler.) The flavors were great! And making ahead is always a plus. This would be good to take to a picnic or potluck.)

    Yum! I used Itlaian parsley (since my husband does not like mint) and grated fresh parmesan. Loved the grilled flavor with the parmesan.

    Very good! Will definitely make this again. Doesn't almost everything taste better when grilled? I'm not a big fan of zucchini, but absolutely loved it prepared this way.

    Did not end up with the prescence we had hoped for, maybe we needed to slice Zucchini thicker. Cooked on a charcoal grill, probably better on a gas grill or grill pan.

    Upon inspection of my grill I realized I was out of gas, so I sauteed the zucchini and onions in a large skillet on high heat. They were great, the vinegar and mint make this easy dish.

    Absolutely amazing!!! Made this last night on our indoor grill plan. We didn't have any mint so we just left it out and it was still great. This is perfect for company and will for sure be in our regular dinner rotation at home.

    Loved the mint and the parmesan together. Also loved that this can be totally prepped ahead. Will be having the leftovers over leftover herbed orzo for lunch tomorrow.
