Zucchini with Tomatoes and Basil
Why This Recipe Works
We found that the secret to a zucchini recipe that would expel extra water and leave behind zucchini with concentrated flavor was to combine two recommended methods: salting and draining as well as shredding and squeezing. For our zucchini recipe, we grated the zucchini with a box grater, tossed the shreds with salt, drained them in a colander, and wrung them out in a kitchen towel. We tossed the now-dry shreds with a little olive oil and added them to a hot nonstick skillet, where they became tender and lightly browned with only minimal stirring.
