Your Favorite Ways to Eat Zucchini

by in In Season, August 24, 2012

Out of all the different varieties of summer squash, zucchini seems to be the fan-favorite. This green summer veggie can fit seamlessly into any course, be it an appetizer, main or dessert, and even its flower — which usually gets cut off before the zucchini hits the grocery store — is edible. We asked you, our readers, on Facebook and Twitter to tell us your favorite way to eat zucchini, and we received a lot of really creative answers. Most of you, however, said that you preferred your zucchini simply grilled with a little bit of olive oil, salt and pepper –  a perfect recipe for savoring the end of the summer!
