What a wonderful idea, to grill zucchini! A neighbor dropped off several zucchini she grew in her garden. I’ve been looking for unique ideas to use and enjoy them!
My husband and I have been grilling zucchini for years, to accompany grilled chicken and fish. We cut ours in half, but your way adds more surface area for the seasoning, making it extra yummy. So glad I came across your recipe. Thanks!
