Author Notes

A fun, edible way to decorate your plate or table; I like to skewer and grill zucchini - ribbon style and sometimes with cherry tomato. Before serving, a sprinkle of herbs, a drizzle of vinaigrette or olive oil adds a great finishing touch, the flavor possibilities are endless. These zucchini ribbons are great served raw, too, but I prefer them grilled. Tip: using a vegetable grilling pan for these or placed on foil makes them easier to handle.

Directions
  1. INSTRUCTIONS
  2. Wash and chop off the ends of the zucchini.
  3. With a vegetable peeler, peel strips lengthwise. Turn as you reach the seeds. Discard the core.
  4. Skewer the strips ribbon style, refrigerate until ready to grill.
  5. Grill them over indirect heat, they won't take long so stay close by.
  6. Before plating, season the ribbons with herb(s) of your choice and lightly spritz with a vinaigrette or olive oil - flavors are endless and up to you.
  7. Salt & pepper to taste.
  8. Note: Using a vegetable grill pan or placed on foil works wonders because the ribbons like falling through the grill!
