1 tbsp olive oil, extra virgin
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried basil

Freshly ground black pepper


Preheat grill on medium-high. In a large bowl, toss zucchini with oil, red wine vinegar, parsley, basil, and garlic powder. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper, to taste.

Once grill is hot, carefully use tongs to rub an oiled paper towel over grates to clean.

When zucchini is tender, remove from heat, taste for salt and adjust as needed and eat right away.
