Grilled zucchini with feta and lemon
SmartPoints® value per serving
This simple-to-prepare side is proof that a handful of ingredients can produce delicious results in a short amount of time. Feel free to use a mix of fresh zucchini and yellow summer squash to add a bit more color. You could toss in a small handful of fresh herbs to the feta mixture, using one herb or a mix of whatever you’ve got. This dish also easily double or triples if you're serving a crowd.
