This zucchini salad with Mediterranean dressing is the best side dish. I also like to add summer squash for a variation, or crumbled goat cheese when I want some extra creaminess. —Rashanda Cobbins, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

  • 3 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons minced fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1 medium lemon, juiced and zested
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted


  1. In a large bowl, combine zucchini and 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add salt and pepper; toss to coat. Transfer to a grill wok or open grill basket; place on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium-high heat until zucchini is crisp-tender, 5-10 minutes, turning occasionally.
    Transfer zucchini to a serving bowl; sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and red onion. When it cools slightly, sprinkle with mint, parsley, lemon juice and zest, and cheese. Stir gently. Sprinkle with pine nuts before serving.
