Serves 4 (serving size: about 4 slices)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Nice variation for zucchini

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.

this recipe was fast, fresh and so delicious. I had the tomato, basil, and zucchini right in my garden. Made it 2 nights in a row.

Might go with half a clove next time, but otherwise, this is is simple, easy, cheap and perfect.
