Chinese-Style Zucchini

A quick side, this fresh-tasting dish is a good pair with salmon. The toasted sesame seeds really bring out the flavor. —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

    What a great way to use zucchini! I've tried it with yellow and patty pan squash and a mix of the three. All great. I've doubled the recipe so I can use leftovers as an omelet filling.
