This recipe combines Zucchini with Mint for a simple and fresh flavor. Choose small tender zucchini that are similar in size. You can eat this dish warm as a side... or at room temperature as part of an antipasto assortment. If you eat them cold, drizzle with a little lemon juice and some good olive oil before serving.
Cut the zucchini into quarters lengthwise, then across into ½ - ¾-inch long chunks. If you cannot get small zucchini, try 8-10 large ones.
Heat the olive oil in a wide skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil starts to shimmer, add the scallions. Sautee until they soften, then add the zucchini and a pinch of sea salt.
Turn the heat to medium and sauté the zucchini until they have softened and have started to turn golden. This will take about 15-20 minutes. Check for seasoning and, if desired, add the lemon juice to taste. Sprinkle with the chopped mint and parsley. Cook one more minute for the flavors to blend. Serve.
