Grilled zucchini and buffalo mozzarella salad

Prep 15 mins

Cook 15 mins

4 as a side dish

Zucchini and buffalo mozzarella is all it takes to create a beautiful side dish for any barbecue. 

3 grey zucchini

3 green zucchini

1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

2 buffalo mozzarella


A large handful of basil leaves, finely chopped

2 tsp oregano leaves, finely choped

60ml extra-virgin olive oil

1 tbsp white wine vinegar

1. Preheat a charcoal barbecue until hot coals turn white, and set up a rack for indirect grilling. You can also use a gas barbecue we just love the taste you get from charcoal.

2. Grill zucchini in batches, turning once until charred (1-2 minutes each side; depending on the heat). Transfer to a bowl and season to taste.

3. For dressing, stir ingredients to combine and season to taste.

4. To serve, layer zucchini into a serving dish, and tear mozzarella over the zucchini in between adding, while zucchini is still warm, then drizzle with the dressing and give the salad a light toss to combine.
