Ingredients

  • 4 zucchinis (about 1-1/2 lb/750 g)
  • 6 green onions trimmed
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp (5 ml) grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup (250 ml) fresh parsley
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) feta cheese

Method

Halve zucchini crosswise; cut each piece lengthwise into scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. In large bowl, toss zucchini, green onions, 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper.

In another large bowl, whisk together lemon rind and juice and remaining oil, salt and pepper; set aside.

Place zucchini on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender-crisp, 5 minutes. Add to dressing. Place green onions on grill; close lid and grill, turning once, until tender, 4 minutes. Let cool slightly. Slice green onions thinly; add to dressing along with parsley. Toss to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.)

Sprinkle salad with feta cheese.
