Zucchini is just like yellow summer squash but it’s green. It has a mild flavor, gets tender when you cook it, and makes a great side dish. Look for firm zucchini, and choose smaller ones because they have better flavor and smaller seeds inside. To prepare zucchini, cut off the ends and chop or slice it. Zucchini is great sautéed, steamed, roasted, or grilled. To grill zucchini, cut it into thick, flat, even slices and brush it with a little oil to keep it from sticking. Try cooking it with fresh herbs like basil or rosemary. Enjoy zucchini on its own or with other summer vegetables like tomato, onion, and eggplant!
