This summery side cooks in the time your meat takes to rest, so have the veggies ready to grill as soon as the main is done. If you like, substitute parsley, chives or tarragon for the basil.

  • Portion size 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 zucchinis
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic finely grated or minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 2 pkg (each 255 g) cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves

Method

Slice zucchini diagonally into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rounds. Set aside.

In large bowl, stir together oil, garlic, pepper and salt. Thread tomatoes onto metal or soaked wooden skewers; brush with half of the oil mixture. Toss zucchini with remaining oil mixture.

Place tomato skewers and zucchini on greased grill over medium-high heat; grill, uncovered, turning occasionally, until tomatoes begin to blister and zucchini is tender and grill-marked, about 8 minutes. Remove to plate; sprinkle with basil.
