Grilled Zucchini, Herbs & Goat Cheese | Recipe

Sharing is Caring

This Grilled Zucchini, Herbs and Goat Cheese Recipe is a perfect summer side. This fresh tangy, herb infused dish is not only tasty but it sure looks pretty on the table.

During the summer months we grow A LOT of zucchini. They are one of the most versatile veggies and stupid easy to grow, which is of course why we grow so many.

Summer time is perfect for grilled veggies but I like to liven them up different ways and this way is my go to for company. It’s fresh, tangy and a beautiful display for your summer table. 

What You’ll Need To Make This Zucchini Recipe:

1 extra large or 3 regular sized zucchinis cut into wide strips long ways as pictured

Olive oil

2 sprigs of fresh dill

2 tablespoons of fresh chopped flat italian parsley

1 small package of fresh goat cheese

Salt & Pepper to taste

You May Also Need:

Cast Iron Grill Pan

herbs chopped up on a cutting board

Directions:

Cut your zucchinis up as pictured. I like to score mine slightly to give a pretty design once grilled but it’s not a necessary thing to do. Drizzle the zucchini with olive oil on both sides. You can use a brush if you’d like for even coating. Sprinkle it with salt and pepper.

Heat a heavy bottomed grill pan (cast iron preferable)  drizzle some more olive oil to the bottom of the pan. Cook zucchini on both sides making sure it’s not soggy but grilled enough to have a slight char.

Place on a plate, taking kitchen scissors, cut the dill over the slices so it’s evenly sprinkled. Sprinkle the parsley over the top  as well. Finish by crumbling the goat cheese over the top.

You can add a couple drizzles of olive oil if you like them dressed a bit. I typically find that I don’t need to. Serve immediately.
