These delicious, garlicky zucchini slices, lightly sautéed and marinated in olive oil, make a great side dish for grilled meats. Marinated vegetable salads are a popular accompaniment for Brazilian churrasco (barbequed meats). These vegetables are great on sandwiches or with pasta, and they keep for up to a week in the refrigerator (and even improve with age). You can add other vegetables to the mix, such as sliced eggplant and/or sliced bell peppers. Olives and capers are nice additions as well.

How to Make Brazilian Abobrinha Marinada (Marinated Zucchini)
