Reviewed Grilled Zucchini Salad with Lemon-Herb Vinaigrette and Shaved Romano and Toasted Pine Nuts

There are some issues with the way this recipe was written vs. the video. 1. Bobby cuts the zucchini in half, then grills it. It is not in thin strips. In fact, he makes a comment about cutting vegetables to small and them falling into the grill. After it is grilled, he cuts it into chunks, not strips. 2. The recipe says to grill about a minute on"

Phenomenal! I have never removed garlic while making a dish, and I am shocked at what a difference it makes. I halved the recipe and used only canned clams. I don't normally use butter, but I do think it makes a difference. We just had a little leftover--it was so good I ate it cold and still loved it. This is definitely a keeper!"
