Easy Grilled Zucchini Recipe: This 2-Ingredient Zucchini Recipe Is Zesty

What's the secret to making flavorful grilled zucchini with just one ingredient (not counting the zucchini)? Marinating the zucchini in a bottle of zesty Italian salad dressing. Seriously!

This grilled zucchini recipe is a super simple side dish that goes well with any protein and takes just minutes to prepare.

Cuisine: Italian
Prep Time: 5 minutes plus 1 hour to marinate
Cook Time: 5 to 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 to 15 minutes plus marinating time
Servings: 4


Here's how to make it:

  1. Put the sliced zucchini in a plastic zipper bag. Pour the salad dressing into the bag. Shake to coat the squash and let it marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature. 
  2. Remove the zucchini from the marinade. Grill over moderate heat, turning often, until soft and just slightly charred, about 5 to 10 minutes.
