Anyone who grows zucchini knows what a prolific plant it is. Bountiful zucchini harvests have inspired one of our favorite holidays — ‘National Sneak Some Zucchini onto your Neighbor’s Porch Day’ — observed on the eighth of August every year. Whether you grow it or not, you can honor its abundance and celebrate the holiday by enjoying some in your own kitchen and sharing it with a friend or neighbor.

Summer squash are nutritionally packed with health benefits that help us through the hot summer weather. They are great sources of potassium — a vital mineral — which we lose when we perspire. They also have good amounts of vitamins A and C, and they are rich in cancer-fighting carotenes.

So good Grilled!

Zucchini is delicious simply grilled. Halve smaller zucchini lengthwise; slice larger squash into ¼-½-inch thick planks. Brush with oil and dried Italian seasoning or your favorite vinaigrette and place over a medium-hot grill. Cook until tender and grill-marked, 4-5 minutes per side.

As these recipes attest, this versatile cucurbit works well in all kinds of dishes — savory or sweet!
