Notes

Medium-sized zucchinis work best for this recipe. Smaller zucchinis should be cut slightly thicker than medium ones.

– Grilled zucchini is best enjoyed straight off the grill. This way, they're still perfectly crunchy with just the right amount of tenderness.

– There are plenty of condiments you can serve with grilled zucchini. Try it with sauces like yogurt herb, garlic, tahini, barbecue, or peanut sauce. This light side dish also tastes amazing with a simple squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

– Make sure your grill is nice and hot before you oil it.
