Grilled Zucchini Rounds

Cook Time: Approximately 15-20 Minutes

Spring is here, I repeat Spring is HERE. It’s been a long cold winter, but finally we can see a light at the end of the tunnel (and after we get off work thanks to daylight savings!). This means no more braving the cold to shovel out your grill from 10 feet of snow. The cold weather grilling season is finally coming to a close.

To celebrate this momentous occasion, we’ve provided you with yet another veggie recipe: grilled zucchini rounds! We feel that zucchini is best when grilled, but then again we’re pretty biased. There’s just something about that perfectly charred skin combined with the soft, seedy middle that’s hard to beat! You can use this same recipe for all kinds of squash variations, the sky’s the limit. Enjoy!
