Fire Day Friday: Zucchini Spiedini

Grilling, it’s not just for meat anymore….

Technically these are not true spiedini since they are vegetable, but c’mon, the name just sounds hilarious. I try to make all of my grilled side dishes take 10 minutes or less to grill. That way I can cook them on the grill as the meat is resting. This is one of our favorite quick veggies during the week.
Speedy Zucchini Spiedini
Servings: 2
2 ea zucchini
½ cup Italian dressing (or any vinaigrette)
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 oz feta cheese
Cut zucchini into ½ inch slices. I like to cut them on a bias just for appearance sake but it’s not necessary. Place sideways on kabobs.
TIP:  To get the stripes like above, run a veggie peeler lengthwise down the zucchini in a few places before slicing.
Marinate kabobs in the vinaigrette for 30 minutes. Remove from marinade and season both sides with season salt.
Grill for 3 minutes a side over a 350f fire.
Sprinkle with fine crumbled feta cheese or pecorino romano cheese.
Also, it’s not too late to enter my May BBQ Giveaway over at Nibble Me This.   You have until Saturday Night at midnight.  It’s sponsored by Bush Beans and comes with all of these great BBQ and bean accessories.  Yes, that includes the Emile Henry bean pot pictured.
