Over the weekend I worked on updating my huge collection of 50 Amazing Zucchini Recipes and realized I really wanted better photos for this Grilled Zucchini Greek Salad. So I made it and took some greatly improved photos, and remembered that wow, is this recipe ever a winner! It’s a simple idea I came up with years ago when my garden had lots of zucchini and tomatoes, and not many cucumbers.
Grilling the zucchini with olive oil and Greek Seasoning, and then combining the grilled zucchini pieces with tomatoes, olives, Feta cheese, and an oregano-flavored vinaigrette dressing makes a wonderful Greek Salad variation, even if it’s not authentically Greek.
And I am not sure what I was thinking back in the day, but this previously was a recipe for only one serving of salad, and I’m updating it to be a regular-sized salad that makes about six servings, or maybe only four if you really like these ingredients. If you need ideas for using zucchini I hope you’ll give this favorite of mine a try. If you’re a Greek Salad fan, I bet you’re going to love it!
How to make Grilled Zucchini Greek Salad:
(This is just a description of the steps above; scroll down for complete recipe.)
- Cut off both ends and cut zucchini into fourths lengthwise, or maybe sixths if the zucchini is large.
- Brush sides with olive oil.
- Sprinkle cut sides of zucchini with Greek Seasoning (affiliate link).
- On a grill that’s preheated to high, lay the zucchini with the cut side down and cook about 3-4 minutes.
- When you see grill marks, flip over to second white side and grill about 3-4 minutes more.
- Then turn over so green skin of zucchini is down and grill 2-3 minutes more.
- While zucchini grills, whisk together Newman’s Own Olive Oil and Vinegar Dressing (affiliate link) or other low-sugar purchased vinaigrette, and dried oregano to make the dressing. (Oops, forgot to take a photo of that!)
- Let the zucchini cool a minute or two, then cut into pieces.
- Put zucchini in a bowl with about 1/3 of the dressing and toss.
- Let the zucchini absorb the dressing while you chop tomatoes, cut olives in half, and crumble the feta cheese.
- Mix the chopped tomatoes and olives in with the zucchini pieces and add more dressing.
- Add the crumbled feta and gently combine.
- Season with fresh ground black pepper and serve.
