This delicious summer dish is so simple and only uses a few ingredients.
adapted from Better Homes and Gardens

3  medium zucchini (I mixed in some yellow summer squash), sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch planks
3 Tbsp. olive oil
salt and black pepper
8 oz. fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
2 Tbsp. snipped dill
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

1. Preheat grill.
On a baking sheet arrange zucchini in a single layer. Brush both sides lightly using about 2 Tbsp olive oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2. Place zucchini directly on grill rack and grill over medium heat for 6-8 minutes, turning once.
3. On a serving platter, arrange warm zucchini with mozzarella. Sprinkle with dill and crushed red pepper. Drizzle with lemon juice and the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
