When zucchini and tomatoes are in season, this simple dish—that takes less than 15 minutes to make—is a fantastic weeknight option. The zucchini is sautéed just until crisp-tender before the tomatoes are added and warmed through. If you’d like the tomatoes to be a bit more charred, add them to the pan when the zucchini starts cooking. You can also cook them a bit longer to reach your desired level of browning. The fresh mint is added at the end to preserve its refreshing, cooling flavor and aroma in this side dish. For a pretty presentation, choose a mix of yellow and red tomatoes.
