“Zucchini is prevalent in the United Sates during the summer months and is a low fat vegetable that is high in vitamin C. The zucchini has a delicate flavor that requires little more than quick cooking with olive oil and fresh herbs, such as basil. This is a super easy recipe, and is a tasty side dish to any Mediterranean dish.”
