Grilling Zucchini Strips

Zucchini and Goat Cheese Wraps

So if you read the blog often you’ve probably figured out that I have just about every kitchen gadget known to man.  However, I never had a mandoline slicer, until now! To break it in I wanted to try a bunch of different Zucchini recipes.  The first idea I had was to make thin slices of Zucchini and form them into wraps.  The result was awesome!
