Step by Step Method
Preheat a ridged grill pan on top of the stove for about 10 minutes.
Grill the zucchini slices until tender and lightly browned on both sides.
In a bowl, mix the cubes of cheese with the lemon zest and some of the chopped herbs, tossing to coat the cheese.
Place a piece of cheese on each zucchini slice. Roll up and secure with a toothpick.
Put the rolls into a bowl and drizzle over a little olive oil and the lemon juice.
Sprinkle with the remaining herbs and season with salt and black pepper.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes. If preparing in advance, leave in the refrigerator covered with plastic film.
When ready to serve, add a little extra fresh lemon juice and black pepper and stir gently.
