Zucchini and/or green chile make a great summer side dish when you slice them into bite size strips to resemble french fries. Dipped in a buttermilk batter and rolled in panko bread crumbs give them a crispy outer texture that tastes so good. French fries and ketchup may go hand in hand, however zucchini and chile fries taste especially good dipped in salsa or green chile dip. You can’t go wrong there. Imagine these fries alongside a big juicy burger or a grilled chicken sandwich. I can assure you they truly taste scrumptious together!

It’s been gorgeous weather this week and I decided to pick up some veggies and make panini’s for dinner. I sliced and assembled my veggies and went outside to set up the grill. It was sunny and in the upper 70’s, just perfect outside but I noticed that the wind was picking up. I drizzled my sliced veggies with olive oil and sprinkled with salt and pepper and began grilling. Everything was going well but the wind was just wicked. About the time I finished, I realized that big clouds were rolling in. I had just enough time to let the grill cool and get everything inside before it turned dark and started pouring rain. The veggies turned out perfect and I piled them together between sourdough bread with some fresh mozzarella cheese, spinach pesto and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. It was just the perfect combination!
