Oven Roasted Zucchini Salad

I used to make this as a topping for bruschetta or as a side for grilled chicken. These days I just serve it as a salad. Terrific flavors!

2 tbsp olive oil
2 - 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 tsp salt free Italian seasoning (marjoram, thyme, rosemary, savory, sage, oregano, basil)
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper
2 lb zucchini
1 large red bell pepper
3 green onions, sliced
3 tbsp Pecorino Romano cut into very small dice
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp dried currants
pinch red pepper flakes
2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine the olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Set aside.

Wash and dry the zucchini. Cut into small dice; about 1/2 an inch or slightly smaller. Add to the olive oil mixture and toss until coated.

Spread evenly over a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes.

Remove from oven, cool and add to mixing bowl.

Wash and seed the red bell pepper. Cut into 1/4 inch dice and add to bowl. Add the sliced green onions, Pecorino Romanoparsley, currants and red pepper flakes.

Drizzle the white balsamic vinegar over everything and toss. Taste and adjust the seasonings with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes as needed. Serve

Currants make this very exciting. I'll give it a try. GREG
