Grilled Zucchini With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

“I made this up because I needed a simple vegetable side dish with souvlaki. This works well with meat, chicken or fish, and people have really enjoyed it when I make it. I prefer the texture of oil-packed sundried tomatoes here, but dried would also work. I use a vegetable grill basket/wok to cook this in, but roasting the veggies would also be nice. Let me know if you try it that way.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut zucchini into 1 1/2" spears.
  2. Julienne the tomatoes.
  3. Coarsely chop the garlic.
  4. Mix everything together in a large bowl and let marinate for an hour or so.
  5. Transfer the zucchini to the grill wok with tongs, leaving some marinade, tomato and garlic behind.
  6. Grill over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini starts to soften up and gets some grill marks, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Return the zucchini to the bowl and toss together with the remaining marinade and tomatoes.
  8. I've added toasted pine nuts at the end, and crumbled feta another time.
  9. Mix it up!
