Grilled Zucchini Summer Salad

Grilled Zucchini Summer Salad

My idea for this salad initially started out as a Grilled Avocado Salad… that didn’t turn out as planned when two of the avocados were super ripe and then one was hard as a baseball. Truly living out the avocado memes. So, instead, when gardens are thriving this time of summer, I decided to use some home grown zucchini, and kinda throw in whatever else sounded good. This grilled zucchini salad did not disappoint.


I kind of just threw in all things summer and colorful because salads can be fun like that. Yes, fun. I would be lying if I said I looked at this salad and didn’t squeal out of excitement. It doesn’t take much to excite me.

The only thing I would change is I would marinate the zucchinis before grilling them. Here is a great, basic zucchini marinade recipe from the Food Network.

Below is the recipe for what I used for this salad. I won’t include the amounts, because salads are up to your making… if you want more tomatoes, get on with your bad self, and put lots of tomatoes in there.
