Reviews for Grilled Zucchini with Onions
"This was easy, tasty, and healthy. The red pepper flakes give it a mild kick. Will make again."
"I used Italian dressing instead of olive oil, but did everything else the same. Tasted great! Will make again."
"This was delicious and so easy to make. I halved the recipe for just 2 servings and it was a great blend of smoky flavor from the grill, tart from the lemon, a hint of heat from the red pepper flake and the creaminess of the zucchini itself. A definite keeper."
