Zucchini are a member of the summer squash family - a category that refers more to perishability than availability. Serve this easy dish with Potato-Wrapped Salmon.

Ingredients

olive oil

1 tsp

garlic clove(s)

2 medium clove(s), minced

uncooked zucchini

3 medium, cut into 1/4 inch rounds

unsweetened orange juice

¼ cup(s)

red wine vinegar

1 Tbsp

kosher salt

¼ tsp

orange zest

¼ tsp, grated

mint leaves

3 Tbsp, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil. Sauté the garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the zucchini; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the orange juice, vinegar, salt and orange zest; cook until the liquid is slightly thickened but hasn't evaporated, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the mint. Serve hot or at room temperature.
