This is such an easy side dish that my mom is famous for. Great with grilled pork chops, chicken, or steak!

I thought this recipe was okay but nothing special. I found the vinegar taste a little out of place and though I ususally love the kick of cayenne it didn't work for me in this dish. I prefer to saute the onions garlic and zucchini in butter then simply season with salt. Read More

This recipe was awesome! Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. I did end up adding another teaspoon of the vinegar and seasoning with salt at the end. YUM!!!! Read More

Very good. I added some fresh mushrooms and seasoned the dish with fresh thyme. I didn't use strict measurements so probably ended up using a little more vinegar than the recipe stated. Read More

This recipe calls for 1/4 cup olive oil divided; it never tells what to do with the other 2 tablespoons. It was good though!! Read More

With such good reviews I was surprised at how much I disliked this. The vinegar gave the zucchini a sharpness that was most unpleasant. Read More

This was good! I left out the cayenne (for my mom) but changed nothing else (though I did just eyeball amounts). I will be making it again! Read More
