I have a magic  zucchini factory in the garden.   One minute beautiful yellow flowers, then POOF, elegant slender zucchini.    One must lift the safe-guarding prickly leaves to be sure to find every zucchini.  Then you gather intoxicating handfuls of mint, dill and parsley.  It is these herbs that make this particular recipe for zucchini fritters so delicious.  Toss in some cubed feta cheese and you are away to the races.

Put small dollops of your zucchini mixture into the saute pan.  They are perfect for appetizers.  Serve them with a simple little dipping sauce of mayonnaise sparked with Sriracha sauce and thinned with a little white wine vinegar.

Or use a large amount of the mixtures for generous sized fritters perfect for a meal.    Garnish with a smattering of Greek yogurt and a sprinkling lemon zest and a little sea salt.  Add a simple tossed salad and you have the ultimate summer meal.

This taste of summer awaits you in MRS.BUTTERFINGERS kitchen.


  1. Sounds a perfect summer dinner with salad! I imagine other fritter with salad dinners now. I alsoo love stuffing the zucchini with ricotta and mint, dipping in batter and frying. Served with fresh lemon… yumm!! xoxo

    • It is becoming a zucchini jungle in the garden, Resa. Love the idea of stuffing the little green devils with Ricotta and frying them. The name of the game is staying ahead of the zucchini and enjoying them. XXOO Virginia
