Grilled Zucchini is just one of my favorite vegetables to have with grilled chicken or even a steak, until the fresh garden string beans appear. Then, I make the switch to those yummy green vegetables. Yes, I have a recipe for fresh string beans and as soon as I make it, you will get it. We also need a lesson on Charcoal grilling to be posted soon. I think it’s a lost art. Besides, I could use Kingsford as a sponsor, just saying, if you’re reading this Kingsford people! I could use free Charcoal! They make all different types like apple wood now too!


Long BBQ Tongs

Knife cutting board

Zip top bag



1 to 2 Zucchini

Olive oil

Garlic powered



(Italian salad dressing) Optional


            Wash and cut the zucchini into quarters. Marinate in a zip top bag that has a 1/4 cup of Italian salad dressing in it. If you’re in a time crunch and can’t wait for that vegetable to marinate, or would like a more mild flavor, then coat with olive oil and sprinkle on some garlic powder, salt, and pepper.

            Grill on a preheated gas BBQ or if using charcoal, wait until the coals turn just turn completely gray. Turn over the zucchini onto each one of the three sides, cooking each side for two minutes per side. Remove from grill to plate and serve.

I will keep grilling until it rains, then I’ll move inside. Until then, be well, stay healthy, and enjoy LIFE!
