I hated zucchini my whole life – all squash for that matter. My boss gave me some huge zucchini from her garden and I had no idea what to do with them but didn’t want to say ‘no thanks’. I decided to mix it with my favorite vegetable- tomato, and my favorite herb – basil, thus starting my obsession with zucchini!
2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes
2 Medium Zucchini
1/4 Cup Chopped Basil
1 Tablespoon of Butter
2 Chopped Garlic Cloves
1 Teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
Salt & Pepper to Taste
First chopped the basil, slice the cherry tomatoes in half and the zucchini into 1/4 inch wide slices.
Sautee for about five minutes until the zucchini is tender and slightly browned.
Add tomatoes until they are heated through, about 3 minutes. And finally add the basil for the final minute.
Now that all the veggies are warm and tender they are ready to serve. This salad can stand alone, or be served along side a protein like my whole grain mustard salmon…
or tossed with pasta. You decide!
