A New Spin on Zucchini

This side has been in permanent rotation at our house. When summer hits, zucchini and summer squash are constants on our dinner table. Economical and easy to make, I can’t get enough of them. With soy sauce and sesame oil, zucchini takes on a buttery, perfectly spiced flavor that goes as well with grilled pork chops, as it would hamburgers. Try it this week. You won’t be disappointed.
