In the 1980s, zucchini was showing up in everything from casseroles to cakes. The dishes usually tasted pretty good, but eventually I just got burned out on zucchini.
Recently I tried a grilled zucchini sandwich in a neighborhood restaurant and fell in love all over again. Lightly grilling the zucchini made it shine.
This is my version of that sandwich, which is dressed with a simple basil mayonnaise and served on a good nutty bread. Once you taste it, you may become a zucchini lover again too.
