Zucchini with Lemon, Za’atar and Tahini Yogurt

Silky, supple broiled zucchini slices are paired with tangy, tahini-enriched yogurt and finished with toasted walnuts for this simple side or starter. Bracing lemon, both zest and juice, along with pungent garlic, za’atar (a Levantine spice, seed and herb blend) and fresh herbs provide bold flavor accents. Serve this with warmed flatbread for dipping into the tahini-yogurt sauce.

Don’t overcook the zucchini. Lightly charred slices have the best flavor and appearance, but broilers vary in heat output, so monitor their progress. It’s better to err on the side of scant browning and just tender texture than to char the zucchini to the point of being overcooked, as the slices will become mushy and lifeless.
