Total Time: 50 Minutes; 20 Minutes Active

  • 1 pound zucchini
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • Zest from 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Remove the ends from the zucchini and slice them lengthwise into halves or thirds.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice, vinegar and spices. Place the zucchini in a large dish or on a rimmed sheet pan and pour the marinade over the zucchini. Let sit for 30 minutes or more, stirring occasionally.

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Grill the zucchini slices for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, basting with any remaining marinade when flipping. Serve warm.

Servings Suggestion

Toss the zucchini with chunks of fresh tomato, feta cheese and cooked couscous for a light Mediterranean salad.
