Ready Time

20 mins


10 servings


  • 2 pounds fresh zucchinis, sliced into 1/4-inch thick rounds
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 ounces crumbled feta cheese (optional)
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced


Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Place the zucchini slices on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Toss to coat evenly.

Roast in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until tender and lightly caramelized.

While the zucchini is roasting, in a small bowl, whisk together lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and 1/2 cup of olive oil.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

In a large serving bowl, combine the roasted zucchini, chopped basil, garlic, and crumbled feta cheese (if using).

Drizzle the lemon vinaigrette over the top, tossing gently to combine.

Let it sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Serve warm, garnished with additional basil leaves if desired.


Use any color zucchini you like, but the bright yellow ones will give a nice pop of color to the dish.

Don’t overcrowd the baking sheet, roast in batches if needed.

You can also grill the zucchini slices on an outdoor grill or grill pan for a smoky flavor.

For a lighter vinaigrette, use only 1/4 cup of olive oil in the dressing.

Feta cheese is optional, but it adds a nice salty kick.

If you don’t have Dijon mustard, you can substitute with any other type of mustard.

This salad is perfect for a summer dinner party – just make it ahead and let it sit at room temperature.

You can also serve it at room temperature or even chilled, it’s up to you!
