This zucchini salad pairs our Meaty Grilled Zucchini and a lemony Middle Eastern-style dressing (and you’ll want this dressing on pretty much everything) for a match made in heaven. You can make the dressing up to 2 days ahead, cover and refrigerate. Let it come to room temperature, before drizzling it over the squash.


1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1 clove garlic, grated
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 recipe Meaty Grilled Zucchini
1 tablespoon fresh mint, finely chopped

Whisk together first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Cut the zucchini into 1-½-inch chunks. Arrange zucchini on a serving platter. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with mint. Serve with extra dressing on the side.
