directions

Step 1

Preheat an outdoor grill to medium heat.

Step 2

Put the zucchini on the grill and cover. Cook, turning every 5 minutes, until slightly charred all over and tender when poked with the tip of a paring knife, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove to a cutting board and let cool slightly, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, combine the basil, oil, vinegar and 1 teaspoon salt in a small bowl and whisk until combined. Slice the zucchini into 1/4-inch slices, arrange on a plate, drizzle with the vinaigrette and sprinkle with the chives.
