I know it's true: you have zucchini coming out your ears. Or maybe your neighbor does & you're benefiting. Regardless, you need some ideas on what in the world to do with it, so I'm going to give you my 2 favorite zucchini recipes.
1. Grill it. Slice the zucchini however you want--strips, rounds, whatever. Season with Johnny's Seasoning Salt (a staple around here). Wrap it up with a little butter inside tin foil and grill. Yum. Serve it with some grilled bone-in chicken. The flavor of the dark meat is far, far, far better than the white counterparts--totally & completely worth the extra fat & extra time on the grill. To cook the chicken, wash & prepare it by rubbing Mosquite BBQ seasoning on each piece. Grill, turning every 5 min for about 30 minutes total. Don't be tempted to take off the skin before you cook it; it will give the chicken great flavor and keep in the moisture.
