"Someone shared this zucchini recipe with me years ago. Light and refreshing, it complements any meat you serve it with," pens Sandi Laskowski of Rapid City, South Dakota. Reduced-fat sour cream helps keep the calorie count down, while dill boosts the flavor. Try Sandi's sauce over chicken or grilled fish.
