Grilled Zucchini And Leeks With Herb Dressing Recipe

Substitute your side salad for this zucchini and leek-filled side dish lightly coated in an olive oil herb dressing and topped with toasted walnuts. This would be ideally served as a side to the main protein, like fish, chicken, or even a meaty stew. The toasted walnuts provide crunch and a slightly bitter taste to round out the fresh dressing.

Grilled Zucchini And Leeks With Herb Dressing

Because this dish is vegetarian and vegan friendly, it’s great to prepare for those who eat Paleo or not. Leeks are part of the onion family, so it has a bit of onion flavor but without the powerful onion taste. If you have a FODMAP intolerance, be cautious with leeks because they’re a high FODMAP food.

Pair this dish with a starchy vegetable, like sweet potatoes or butternut squash, alongside your protein portion.
