Zucchini is available year-round and makes a great side dish no matter the season. Ready in just 13 minutes this simple dish is sauteed, then tossed with herbs and feta cheese. Family-friendly and full of fabulous flavor, this dish pairs well with roasted chicken or pork tenderloin. If you are a fan of scallops, top this zucchini with some seared scallops and a squeeze of lemon. 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.
