Summer is officially here.
And the garden is finally starting to deliver some homegrown goodness. On Sunday, Big Guy picked two huge zucchini from the garden and I couldn’t wait to put them on the plate for dinner on Monday.
Zucchini slices are sprinkled with salt and pepper before grilling until tender. While Big Guy manned the grill, I prepped the other ingredients.
I sliced two gorgeous heirloom tomatoes and a mozzarella. I also prepped the balsamic drizzle – a combination of EVOO, balsamic glaze and garlic plus a little salt and pepper.
Once the zucchini was grilled, simply layer all the ingredients. Tomato slice, zucchini slice, mozzarella, more zucchini, tomato and I ended with a zucchini slice.
Once stacked, drizzle the entire platter with the balsamic dressing and then sprinkle with fresh basil.
Summer never tasted so delicious.
