A summer squash, Zucchini is actually a fruit. However, for culinary purposes it is treated as a vegetable. Yes, I know, I have added a lot of fruits to my vegetable category. I can’t help it. I treat some fruits as vegetables but I don’t treat any vegetables as fruit. Does that make me prejudice? I hope not. I love fruits and I certainly love vegetables. I love Zucchini too. I love to deep fry it after it has been covered in a nice batter. Or I love to saute it with fresh herbs and serve as a side to some sort of chicken dish.
