Grilled Zucchini Mozzarella Wraps

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini, sliced into 16 very thin strips (see photos in post)
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 8 thick slices
  • olive oil for brushing
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • toothpicks

Instructions

  1. Begin by slicing the zucchini into very thin strips. I achieved this by using this handheld mandolin slicer on the second setting. Place the zucchini strips on a clean dish towel, covering them, and firmly press down to help remove any moisture. 
  2. Place two zucchini strips in an X formation with a thick slice of fresh mozzarella. Fold the zucchini strips over the cheese and secure with a toothpick. Place the wraps in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. 
  3. When ready to cook, preheat a grill to high heat (400 degrees F). Brush the zucchini wraps with olive oil and season each side liberally with salt and pepper. Grill the zucchini 4-5 minutes on each side. 
  4. Serve immediately with warm marinara, pesto, or your favorite balsamic reduction.
