Spice up your fresh zucchini with this easy but delicious summer recipe.
1 pound zucchini, cut on the diagonal or lengthwise in thin slices
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, as needed
freshly ground pepper
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (more to taste)
1 tablespoon slivered fresh mint or basil
1 lemon, cut in half
Prepare a medium-hot grill. Season the zucchini with salt and pepper, and toss with the olive oil. Grill on each side until the slices are tender and there are light marks on the sides. Transfer to a platter, and sprinkle with the red pepper flakes and the herbs. Douse with lemon juice if desired, and serve.
