Marinated zucchini slices

marinated zucchini slices

This a popular Italian dish of sliced zucchini marinated in a basil, garlic, vinegar, and olive oil based marinade.



For the marinade:


  1. In a large pan over high heat, add olive oil. When the oil is hot, add zucchini slices but do not overcrowd the pan (as this will lower the oil temperature).
  2. Cook on medium high until slices are golden brown, almost slightly charred.
  3. Transfer slices onto a paper towel and repeat until all the slices are cooked.
  4. In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the marinade.
  5. Using a large tupperware, line the bottom with zucchini slices and drizzle with a little dressing. Continue layering and adding a little dressing until all slices are used.
  6. Cover with a lid and refrigerate for a few hour (at least 2). Serve cold.


These marinated zucchini slices will keep refrigerated in a storage container for up to 3 days. Keep in mind that the longer they sit, the soggier they will get.
