One of my goals this month is to try a new veggie each week. My family would eat nothing but canned green beans (gross!) if I'd let them. I have them (reluctantly) eating salads, broccoli, cauliflower, fresh or frozen green beans, and zucchini.
But we need more variety. Please provide suggestions of your favorite vegetables and how you like them prepared

In a medium bowl, add the red wine vinegar and the finely chopped red onion..Slowly whisk in the olive oil until it is thoroughly combined. Add the lemon zest, lime zest,thyme, oregano, rosemary, cilantroand mint. Mix well.
In a pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the salt and thezucchini and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove the zucchinifrom the water and allow it to cool. Slice the zucchini in half lengthwise. Coat the zucchini with the vinaigrettemixture. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
