6 servings (serving size: 1 cup)

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, or use yellow squash.

How to Make It

Step 1

Arrange zucchini on a baking sheet; drizzle with 2 tablespoons oil, turning zucchini several times to coat both sides with oil. Sprinkle on both sides with garlic, oregano, mint, salt, and red and black peppers.

Step 2

Set up your grill for direct grilling, and preheat to high. If you'll be using a vegetable grate, preheat it as well.

Step 3

Arrange zucchini on grill or grate, and cook 3-4 minutes per side or until browned. Transfer to a platter, and arrange in an attractive pattern. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over zucchini; garnish with lemon wedges. Serve hot or at room temperature.

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.
