Warm Zucchini, Feta and Pine Nut Salad

I love zucchini. I really love zucchini and it boggles my mind when someone says they don’t like it, which is funny because most of my cousins hate it. 

I remember on one occasion, my family went to Roses Chinese and I sat in between two of my cousins. Both of their dishes had lots of zucchini so I basically spent the whole time taking it off of their plates and putting it on to mine. It was a win, win for both of us. 


Now I understand that most people don’t love zucchini quite as much as that, but this warm grilled zucchini salad recipe is sure to impress any zucchini lover; and who knows? It might even convert those opposed to this green vegetable. 

Grilled Zucchini Salad

What makes this salad so good is the lovely zesty tang you get from the lemon that soaks into the zucchini and makes it tastes so good. The pine nuts add a perfect crunch to the dish and the feta, well feta is delicious on just about anything! 

The key with this grilled zucchini salad is that you have to have it warm. The sooner you serve it, the nicer it will taste.
