This is a really nice way to serve grilled squash, but cut and "fan" carefully because the charm is in the appearance.  Can be served hot or cold.


Items indicated with an astrisk (*) available for purchase in the Avanti Savoia store.

  • 1 Small zucchini per serving
  • Olive oil to rub squash *
  • Sprinkling of salt and pepper *
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar *
  • 1/2 teaspoon Garlic, minced
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes *


  1. Slice squash lengthwise towards the stem but not all the way through it.
  2. Rub with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. "Fan" out the squash and grill over a hot fire just long enough to mark the zucchini.
  4. Remove from heat, place in a dish with sides and sprinkle on marinade (vinegar, garlic, and red pepper).
