  • 3 small zucchini
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoons fresh cracked black pepper

  • Rinse zucchini and pat dry. Slice in half, width-wise, and then cut each half into quarters.
  • Place zucchini and balsamic vinegar dressing in a gallon zip top bag. Toss to evenly coat every piece. Place in the refrigerator and let the zucchini marinate for at least 2-3 hours.
  • Place the zucchini on the grill, flesh side down. Season with additional salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Grill for 2 minutes per side, or until the flesh is slightly charred and the zucchini is crisp and tender.
  • Remove to a platter and serve immediately.
