Grilled Zucchini Tomato Toasts

Tomatoes are amazing right now, so we’re all grilling variations, like this Grilled Tomatoes Charcuterie Board or even a pot of Best Orange Basil Tomato Soup.

Friends, the out-pouring of love and support to our friends back home has been amazing. If you want to donate to the fires in my hometown, you can start here, Southern Oregon Fire Relief. Oregon and all of the west coast needs our help!

Late summer zucchini appetizer

Before the smoke consumed us here in our little community in central OR, we were able to grill every day. This simple recipe today is one of my favorite summer appetizers. Or, I should say late-summer appetizers. The tomatoes and zucchini are still plentiful in the stores and stands alongside the road. We love to stop and support these local farms!

How to make Zucchini Tomato Toasts

  1. Toast baguette slices. While warm, smear each piece with goat cheese, and top with a slice of tomato. Set aside.
  2. Preheat grill to high heat.
  3. Slice zucchini diagonally. Toss the zucchini in olive oil or mayonnaise and salt and pepper. Place on the grill until grill marks appear, and the zucchini is tender. Remove from grill and allow to cool slightly before cutting the slices in half, lengthwise.
  4. Arrange the zucchini halves on top of the toasts.

Optional to use a toothpick if needed.

All about the balsamic drizzle

The balsamic drizzle on a toast is essential. Delallo now sells a “golden” balsamic (hard to see, it’s so light in color), and we love the light balsamic flavors it offers.

Garnish with fresh basil ribbons and serve!
