Zucchini is available year-round and makes a great side dish no matter the season. We sauteed it and then tossed it with herbs and feta cheese for fabulous flavor.

Ingredients

olive oil

2 tsp

uncooked zucchini

2 medium, cut into 2-inch chunks

dried oregano

1 tsp

fresh parsley

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

crumbled feta cheese

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add zucchini and oregano; sauté until zucchini is golden brown, about 4 to 6 minutes.
  2. Remove skillet from heat and add parsley; toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle feta cheese over top just before serving. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Notes

Feel free to swap yellow squash for the zucchini.If you've never purchased anything but Greek feta cheese, you might want to try French feta for its mild, creamy taste or Bulgarian feta for its exceptional tanginess.
