Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup pitted Kalamata or other black olives
  • 1 Tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 Cup water
  • 3 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 Teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 4 medium-sized zucchini, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped finely
  • 1 small tomato, diced

Directions

Preheat a grill on medium-high heat.

In a blender or the bowl of a food processor, combine the olives, vinegar, pepper, water, 1 tablespoon of the oil, and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Blend until smooth and set aside.

Place the zucchini in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice, garlic, and remaining oil and salt. Grill until well marked and tender, 3-4 minutes per side. Layer zucchini on a platter, drizzling each layer with some vinaigrette and sprinkling with some tomato. Serve hot, warm, or room temperature.
