  • Heat the grill to high heat. Brush the zucchini on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Grill for just about 1 minute per side (until slightly charred and wilted), then remove them to a platter.
  • In a small pan, toast the pine nuts on medium high heat until fragrant.
  • Whisk together the Dijon mustard, lemon juice, lemon zest, and salt and pepper, to taste. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified.
  • Drizzle the vinaigrette over the zucchini. Top with crumbled feta cheese, pine nuts and basil.
