Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Peel and cut the zucchini into pieces that are about half an inch (1-1.5 cm) thick. Use a spoon to remove the seeds. Place in a colander and add salt. Leave for 5-10 minutes and then gently press the zucchini to remove the water.
  2. Fry the zucchini cubes in butter for a couple of minutes over medium heat. They should not brown, just slightly soften. Set aside to cool.
  3. Mix all other ingredients in a big bowl and add the zucchini once it's cool.
  4. Serve as a side dish at your next barbecue.

    This one is a keeper!! Made it several times in the summer, bringing it back this winter for a little "July-in-January" feel!!
