If there’s one thing ubiquitous with summer, it has to be zucchini.  We’ve all experienced the zucchini overload, right?

Too much zucchini in your CSA box.  Giant, zucchini growing in your garden.  Grocery stores practically giving it away.  Summer is all about the zucchini.

Don’t like zucchini?  You’re not alone.  The other members of my household are most definitely not zucchini lovers the way I am.

If I’m looking to appease them, I make Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread, Streusel Topped Zucchini Muffins, or Frosted Zucchini Brownies.

If, however, you’re like me and do like zucchini when it actually tastes like a vegetable, you need this Mexican zucchini in your life.

Summer zucchini and cherry tomatoes, red onion and garlic, fresh cilantro, jalapeños, and cotija cheese.  It’s all my favorite Mexican flavors, paired with fresh zucchini.  And the perfect way to get through your giant zucchini stash.
