Sauteed Zucchini and Sweet Onions

This was a common summer side dish my mom served growing up. I hate to admit it, but it was not my favorite as a kid. Age matures our taste buds, I suppose, because I love zucchini prepared this way now--especially with a sprinkling of herbs. And yes, my kids (and husband) really do like it too.

Sauteed Zucchini and Sweet Onions

zucchini, thinly sliced (I usually choose one small to medium size zucchini per person.)
sweet onions, thinly sliced (one or two)
fresh or dried herbs (I use about 1 tsp. each of basil and oregano.)
salt and pepper to taste

Saute the vegetables in melted butter until limp and transparent adding the herbs as the zucchini cooks. Stir frequently and serve immediately.


  1. Yum! I am on such a zucchini kick right now. I too would never eat this (or many other veggies) as a kid and now I could live on them! Maybe if I try growing zucchini in our garden my kids will give it a whirl.
    Hope you and your family have a happy 4th weekend Julie!

  2. I didn't like zucchini when I was a kid either~ but I love it now! I'll be trying this soon!
