Grilled Zucchini Salad with Tomatoes and Basil
Why This Recipe Works
For the best grilled zucchini recipe, we picked smaller zucchini, which are more flavorful and less watery than the larger ones. Zucchini benefited from grilling since the liquid in the vegetable evaporated when exposed to the dry heat, causing the delicate flavor of the vegetable to become concentrated. In fact, when grilling, it was not necessary, or even desirable, to remove liquid by salting. Given the intense heat of the grill, we found that the high moisture content in the zucchini actually helped to keep the vegetable from scorching over hot coals in our grilled zucchini recipe.
