Best to Buy

Zucchini is available all year long but peaks during late spring.

Prep & Store

Zucchini is low maintenance. Keep it simple: give them a rinse under cool water, but leave the skins on. Slice lengthwise or widthwise, dice, or cut into matchstick-sized pieces.

Tasty Tip

Smaller zucchinis have the most flavor.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Slice zucchini lengthwise and roast with sliced onions and a dash of salt and pepper for a super side dish.
