Tangy and smoky flavors combine in this grilled zucchini, the perfect summer side. 

Notes: Cook zucchini on grill beside the lamb.

How to Make It

Step 1

In a small bowl, mix chopped basil, vinegar, mustard, honey, and garlic. Whisking, blend in oil.

Step 2

Thread zucchini on thin skewers so rounds lie flat and pieces touch. Brush generously with basil vinaigrette.

Step 3

Place zucchini on a barbecue grill over a solid bed of medium coals or medium heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 4 to 5 seconds). Close lid on gas grill. Cook until brown on each side, 5 to 7 minutes total; turn once.

Step 4

Push zucchini from skewers onto a platter. Drizzle with remaining vinaigrette. Garnish with basil sprigs. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Love it. Made it with the honey and followed the recipe. Used it as a light main dish served with orzo and a side salad.

Excellent recipe! We cooked it with a squash/zucchini mixture, in an aluminum pouch instead of skewers. Gave the veggies great taste, and the flavors blended very well.

I used honey-dijon, maple syrup and a combination of yellow squash and zucchini. What a simple and flavorful way to serve grilled veggies!
