Scads of Zukes! 21+ Zucchini Recipes, Tips and Ideas

Garden overflowing with summer’s most prolific vegetable? No worries. This squash is so diverse in its culinary uses, the recipe possibilities are nearly endless, meaning you can put its slightly sweet and delicate taste to work in interesting new recipes.

Zucchini is tender enough to be eaten raw, as in our Zucchini Slaw, which is loaded with fresh herbs and bright lemon flavor. Yet it’s sturdy enough to grill, fry, or roast, too. It can also be a vessel for serving up Mexican-inspired favorites, as in Zucchini Enchilada Boats, while sneaking in a few extra veggies.
