Grilled Zucchini by cucinagirl

2 medium zucchini, washed and ends removed 
1 tablespoon olive oil 
kosher salt 
freshly ground black pepper 


Preheat grill pan (or grill) over medium heat. Slice zucchini lengthwise about 1/8-inch thick. (You may slice them thinner, but they will cook much more quickly and may not hold up well enough to be cooked on the grate of an actual grill.)


In a large bowl, toss the sliced zucchini with olive oil, a few pinches of salt, and several grinds of pepper. Grill over medium heat for about 4-5 minutes per side(until well marked and tender, but not mushy).


Try them as a side, on panini or pizza, or in a salad.
