It is that way in the autumn of the year. You hide and don’t open your door because it’s the neighbor offering baskets of their bumper crop of zucchini. Or, you get no answer when you knock on your neighbor’s door with your own basket of zucchini. So, when you have too much zucchini you make zucchini bread, zucchini pickles - try out all the recipes to use up your bounty from the field. Increasingly one of our favorites has become fried zucchini.
Great as a party appetizer, it is actually quite quick and easy to prepare. Those Sunday afternoon sessions at the TV watching the football game scream for fried zucchini to be on the coffee table among the other chips and dips.
A lot of people like bleu cheese salad dressing as a dipping sauce for their fried zucchini. Some demand marinara sauce or even honey-mustard sauce. I prefer the tangy nip of ranch-style salad dressing. Either green or yellow zucchini can be used. The yellow has a softer skin. If the green zucchini is older and on the tough side, it would be better to peel them before coating and frying.
