This is a colorful, summery, trendy veggie dish that is just so easy, especially if you prep the zucchini and cabbage ahead of time. The lemon makes the yogurt tangy which is a nice compliment to the sweet tomatoes and pepper flakes give the dish a little kick. This recipe serves 4 as a side dish. I serve it alongside grilled pepper-rosemary pork chops. Double recipe for an entree portion and add garlic bread. Consider adding bits of pancetta. —Ashley B
