I love summer! I love all the vegetables and fruits that are in season (peaches, corn on the cob, zucchini, green beans, strawberries, etc.) I usually use zucchini for two things: grated and put into brownies/cake or bread OR this zucchini sauté. This is one of our favorite summer side dishes.
The zucchini is tenderly sautéd with the perfect mixture of onions/garlic, seasonings, salt, and cheese. It is tempting to eat the whole skillet-full, and if you do, that's okay cause it's green! :)
1-2 tablespoons butter
1 medium zucchini, yellow or green or a mixture of both
2 tablespoons yellow onion, finely chopped
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
¾ teaspoon Mrs. Dash® seasoning blend
Garlic salt to taste
Grated cheese to taste
Cut zucchini lengthwise into quarters, and then cut each quartered section into ¼ inch increments from there.
In a medium size non-stick skillet melt butter over medium heat. When butter is melted add onion and cook for 3-4 minutes until onion is slightly golden and tender, add garlic, zucchini, garlic salt, and Mrs. Dash®. Stir occasionally until zucchini has reached desired tenderness (I like mine to have just a little bit of a bite to it - which is 3-5 minutes). When it’s finished cooking sprinkle with grated cheese and let it melt. Serve immediately.
