Easy Sauteed Baby Zucchini

One of my favorite summer sides and so quick to make.

Everything squash is my motto this summer. Especially while I’m here in Greece. The vegetables are so fresh and delicious. No comparison to the US. Since I’m on vacation, I’m not cooking much these days. But when I enter the market I can’t help but check out what looks fresh and these little babies called my name. I hope you try this recipe because it is delicious and super simple to make. Again, don’t forget the lemon wedges to garnish with.
