Grilled Zucchini, Bean and Spinach Salad

This salad is absolutely delicious and always a crowd pleaser to serve as a side. It can also be prepared ahead of time and eaten cold or warm. I use the Ziggy Elite Twin or Triple BBQ from Barbeques Galore.


1 large zucchini (around 300g)

1 400g can mixed beans

1 handful fresh spinach

1 cup fresh parsley

1/2 cup fresh dill

1/2 cup fresh mint

1-2 cloves garlic

1 tbs balsamic vinegar

1 tbs extra virgin olive oil

1 pinch of sea salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 lemon, juiced

1/2 tsp ground paprika

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1 tbs Greek yogurt


  1. Rinse and drain canned beans.

  2. Wash and pat dry the zucchini. Cut 1/4 inch off each end. Chop the zucchini in rounds and then half moons, no thicker than 1/2 inch.

  3. Preheat and prepare a BBQ for direct grilling and cook the zucchini for 3-5 minutes, turning frequently. Remove pieces from the grill grate and put aside until needed.

  4. Chop all the fresh herbs and garlic.
  5.  In a bowl - add the beans, fresh herbs, grilled zucchini, spinach, chopped garlic, balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil and the juice of 1 lemon.

  6. Add 1 tbs Greek yogurt  to the centre of the salad. Then sprinkle ground paprika and cumin. Mix and serve.
