Zucchini Sandwiches

Grilled Zucchini Sandwich
Makes 4 sandwiches

1 1/2 pounds mixed zucchini and yellow squash

2 tablespoons olive oil plus more for grates
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Coarse salt

2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint plus whole leaves

5 ounces herb and chive cream cheese

4 ciabatta rolls, split

2 ripe tomatoes, cored and thickly sliced

1. Heat the grill to medium. Trim tops and bottoms of zucchini and slice each 1/2 inch thick lengthwise. Place in a large bowl, add oil and thyme, and season with salt. Lift zucchini from bowl (reserve bowl) and grill until tender, turning the zucchini as it browns, about 3 minutes per side. Return to bowl, add mint, and toss.

2. Spread goat cheese on one side of each ciabatta. Top with zucchini, tomato slices sprinkled with salt, and whole mint leaves. Close.

To bulk this up, try adding fresh grilled portabellas! Might also be yummy with a little pesto sauce added for zing.
