Easy and Healthy Side Dish: Grilled Zucchini with Rosemary and Feta


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.
