How To Grill Zucchini

When purchasing zucchini, choose small, firm vegetables that are blemish free. Store them in the refrigerator up 7 days. To prepare them for cooking applications, simply rinse under cool running water. The ends may be discarded & then sliced, diced or grated. If the zucchini is particularly small, the vegetable may be cut lengthwise for grilling & leaving the ends in tact makes for a beautiful presentation. The pieces are a good size to place directly on the grate & the charred marks offer a lovely finish to recipes.
