Its that time of year again. The sun is shining, the birds are singing and building their nests, and the grocery shelves are filled to bursting with fresh spring produce. One of my favorite spring treats is fresh zucchini, but it wasn’t until last year, when I started buying it at Costco that I learned how many different ways you could cook with it.
Here are ten great recipes that show just how versatile this Superfood can be.
