I get a lot of requests for easy and healthy side dish recipes, and this is one I absolutely love. Grilled Zucchini with Rosemary and Feta is incredibly flavorful and so versatile. It can be paired with any main-dish: chicken, shrimp, steak, burgers, fish, pork, etc. If you don’t have time to preheat your grill, you can certainly use a grill pan indoors over the stove. Feel free to substitute goat cheese for the feta, and my favorite by far is Belle Chevre.
Grilled Zucchini with Rosemary and Feta
2 medium zucchini (about 3/4 lb.), unpeeled and cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
1 medium yellow squash, unpeeled and cut into 1/2-inch slices
1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
Vegetable cooking spray
2 tbsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (goat cheese may be substituted)
1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
2. Combine zucchini, squash, and onion in a large shallow dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. Place vegetables on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill over medium heat 4 minutes on each side, tossing occasionally. Remove from grill and sprinkle with rosemary and feta cheese. Serve warm or at room temperature.
