Marinated Zucchini

It can be served warm or cold. I love it best at room temperature.

1 1/2 lbs zucchini
2 tbsp olive oil
2 large cloves garlic, sliced
salt (if needed) and freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
1/4 cup white wine
1 tbsp honey
a pinch or two red pepper flakes
2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

Wash and trim the zucchini, then slice it into pieces about 1/2 an inch thick.

Lay them out in a single layer and sprinkle lightly with salt. Set aside for about an hour.

Dry the zucchini with a kitchen towel.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and  saute until it begins to brown. Carefully remove all of the garlic and reserve.  Add the zucchini and fry the slices until they are lightly browned.

Place the fried zucchini slices onto a serving dish. Sprinkle with salt, if needed and freshly ground pepper.

Pour the vinegar and wine into the skillet. Add the honey, red pepper flakes, parsley and reserved garlic slices. Bring the mixture to a simmer, then spoon it evenly over the zucchini slices. Cover and set aside for about 12, up to 24 hours before serving.
