{What's Cooking?} Grilled Zucchini Poppers

I love coming across new recipes that are as fun to make as they are yummy. These Grilled Zucchini Poppers certainly look like they belong where something FUN is going on! Maybe it is my love of vegetables. Maybe it is my craving for a lighter, summer-time menu. Either way, these lovelies will be making an appearance at our dinner table in the near future.

Grilled Zucchini Poppers


•1 grilled green zucchini, thinly sliced brushed with olive oil, aged balsamic and salt and pepper
•1 red pepper julienne, raw
•1 bunch of arugula or greens
•5 Oz goat cheese*
•1 Oz sour cream*
•1/2 Teaspoon of basil pesto
•Lemon Thyme or Balsamic vinaigrette

*You can substitute the goat cheese and sour cream in this recipe with 6oz. of riccotta cheese.

2. Mix goat cheese and sour cream with pesto and spread a thin layer on top zucchini strips.

3. Lay the peppers and a pinch of greens on the end of the strip and roll it up in plastic wrap.
