Zesty Zucchini Cubes

Yield 8 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
By itself, zucchini is bland but this recipe proves that it is a good flavor-carrier. I serve this dish with something plain-tasting, such as roast chicken or broiled fish.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 cups diced zucchini
