If you’re getting buried under homegrown zucchini here’s a quick and delicious side dish you can use them in. I adapted this herby and lemony recipe from Martha Stewart, used chives and mint as my herbs  and just added some grilled sliced zucchini. It’s light, flavorful, really refreshing and, of course, very easy. Hope you like it! :)
