Grilled Zucchini Sticks


Tonight is an easy and delicious dish that is sure to please. I love fried zucchini sticks dipped in ranch dressing. But it is no where near healthy! So instead, cut your zucchini into spears and grill those suckers. Enjoy warm and dip into your favorite light dressing if you want! The smokey flavor from the grill gives a new dimension to the vegetable. Enjoy!

One small zucchini (4.2oz) is only 19 calories/1 gram of fiber/1 gram of protein

Very nice idea! Yum. If you add a bit of herbs de Provence and a bit of balsamic vinegar, BAM! Have a great night!

I love grilled zucchini but my daughter will only eat it fried or in pancakes, hope to convince her sometime soon :)

Grilling zucchini is the best preparation of that veg. I love it, just simply tossed with some good olive oil, sea salt, and balsamic vinegar. A little crumbled feta or goat cheese never hurt, either. ;)

Grilled zucchini is an excellent idea to the fried one. Try it with chimichurri sauce!
I’ve an award for you waiting on my blog :)

Cheers!

Grilled zucchini is great. I've recently tried grilling cucumber and found that's yummy too!

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
