Zucchini with Mint

Zucchini with mint

This simple zucchini recipe is adapted from a Sicilian classic. It’s welcome in late summer or early fall, when zucchini and mint are abundant. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. Serves: 6 to 8

  • 2 long, narrow, medium zucchinis, 1 to 1 1/2 pounds total
  • 1 to 2 scallions, as desired, thinly sliced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar or natural granulated sugar, more or less to taste
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint leaves, or more, to taste

Cut the zucchinis into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Combine in a mixing bowl with the remaining ingredients except the mint, and toss together. Cover and refrigerate for an hour before serving. If you’d like, arrange in overlapping concentric circles as shown, or just let the zucchini slices fall where they may. Just before serving, stir in the mint. Zucchini with mint recipe

    Thank you for reading my mind! The CSA gave us lots of squash – green and yellow – and the mint from last year really got out of hand when we were away (I understand that it rained the whole time we were boiling in Alaska).
