To assemble a delicious grilled zucchini salad, start by using your hands to pick up the salad and form it into a ball. Moreover, place the ball in the center of a plate and lean the pieces all around the sides. Allowing them to overlap slightly. Additionally, in a glass mix two tablespoons of balsamic vinegar with three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
