Dressed Up Zucchini

I LOVE zucchini! It is one of my favorite veggies and I love buying it fresh from the local farmers at the market. It's a great summer vegetable that is easy to find fresh and even though zucchini season is May-August, most grocery stores have it available year round. This recipe is my favorite side dish, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Dressed-Up Zucchini

Here's what you need to make it:
two zucchini
salt and pepper
olive oil
minced garlic
sun-dried tomatoes
fresh basil
feta cheese

Slice zucchini down the middle, cut top and bottom ends of off, then slice off soft seed core. Place zucchini cut side up and sprinkle with salt, set aside for a couple minutes. Dice the sundried tomatoes and basil. Blot water off zucchini and cut into diagonal slices. Next, heat oil in pan over medium heat then add garlic (you can add as much as you want) and zucchini. Saute until zucchini starts to brown. Take off heat and toss in tomatoes, basil, and feta. Season with salt and pepper before serving. (serves 4)

  2. You sound like my BFF... she is also a housewife w/o a husband, only you're younger than her, so you may not be quite as ticked about it. Oh, and she's actually from FL too! What a funny coincidence. Anyway, recipe looks good. Wonder if my dudes will try it? Thanks for stopping by yesterday and leading me back to your blog; looks like a yummy place:)
