Per Nana ~
When I read this recipe I knew I would not like it.
First off, it contained cucumbers which do not agree with me,
and secondly, the thought of uncooked zucchini sounded awful.
I am not a fan of raw veggies, and I dislike grilled
veggies because they never seemed cooked.
I know many people love to grill, I am just not one of them.
That said, I decided to only make 1/3 of the recipe.
The preparation was simple and quick.
I chilled it until dinner time and it was certainly very pretty
when plated. However, hubby and I both agreed that the zucchini
was much to tough. I thought if it had been blanched and then cut
into smaller strips it might have tasted better.
I used the rest of the zucchini for my recipe for "Impossible Pie"
made with Bisquick and is absolutely delicious.
We are in travel status and delivering kids to their appointed "deposit
points" so knocking out this recipe was going to be a challenge....until
Nana reported that she made it and threw it away after tasting it.
(Sorry Dorie ) That was all I needed to hear.
I will report that we thoroughly enjoyed the Impossible Pie
that Nana delivered to my family, who promptly ate the entire
thing in one sitting. Old habits die hard.
Happy French Friday !
