Light and tangy, this meza recipe is extremely easy to make and bursts with the flavor of its fresh ingredients.

Hydration factor: Zucchini provides fiber and vitamin C, but it is mostly water, the combination of which not only hydrates you, but also helps you feel full for longer.

  1. In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, sauté zucchini in olive oil until golden. Place on paper towel to drain oil.
  2. While zucchini is still hot, transfer it to a bowl and add lemon, salt and sugar; toss. (Do not allow mixture to sit for more than 10 – 15 minutes.) Chop fresh mint while zucchini cools to preserve the mint's aromatic freshness. Toss mint with zucchini, drain and serve.
