Snowdon House-5986

Snowdon House Popeye’s Passion Dip Mix (prepare according to directions).

12 1/4 inch thick slices zucchini cut on the diagonal about 1 medium zucchini

12 1/2 inch thick tomato slices (visually a mix of colored tomatoes looks really nice with yellow and red)

  1. Premix 1/2 cup ricotta cheese and 2 tbsp. of Popeye’s Passion & 1 tbsp. chopped chives. Set aside in fridge (best if made the day before, it needs at least 2 hours to rehydrate. Add 1 tsp fresh mint and freshly ground pepper, salt to taste)
  2. Preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
  3. Brush the zucchini all over with the 1 1/2 tsp. of olive oil.
  4. Grill until lightly brown and barely tender (1 to 2 minutes per side). Do not overcook. Set aside.
  5. Season the tomato slices and grilled zucchini with sea salt and black pepper. To assemble put a tomato slice on each of the 4 plates. Top with Zucchini repeat twice more and then top with dollop of ricotta mixture and serve.
