An easy zucchini salad with Feta and mint is a quick and simple zucchini to make on the BBQ, grill or griddle pan. Delicious by itself or a great side dish to a main meal.
This is one of my favourite summer salads and will often appear as a side dish when I am having a BBQ. It is a light, summery dish and the combination of mint, feta and zucchini is just superb. Don't be stingy with the mint either! Make it a large handful!
You can play around with the proportion of the ingredients...the below is for 3 -4 people. And it really depends upon the size of the zucchini. At the moment the large ones that we have in our supermarkets are massive! I only needed two to make a good sized dish! Normally there are only small ones for sale. For those of you who are lucky to grow your own, I am envious!
How to use zucchini in salad
For this zucchini recipe I slice the zucchini length ways about 1 cm thick. If you slice them too thin they will collapse whilst cooking . They are then lightly tossed in olive oil and seasoning then cooked on the grill or BBQ.
