Guest Post: Zucchini with Ricotta and Mint and a Mint Blog Hop

I love Fridays, don't you?! Today is particularly special because not only do I have my weekly blog hop for you, but I am also guest posting over at Everyday Maven! If you don't know Alyssa of Everyday Maven then you are missing out on some seriously simple, healthy, delicious recipes (yes, she hits the nail on the head with all three!). She's a total sweetheart, a great blogger friend, and I don’t think I’ve met a recipe of hers that I don’t want to make. Yesterday I shared a recipe for zucchini, ricotta, and mint appetizers presented in two different ways over at her blog. Zucchini with Mint and Ricotta
I think that zucchini, ricotta, and mint is the ultimate springtime and summer combination, and I love that the same ingredients can be presented multiple ways for different looks. If you like what you see, you're going to have to head over to Everyday Maven to get the recipe 🙂 Once you've done that, I want you to come back here and link up your favorite mint recipes! I've got a big 'ol bunch and can't wait for some great ideas on how to use it. I'm excited for all the sweet, savory, and beverage recipes that you'll share. Have a great weekend!

  1. Love both of your zucchini apps and I know I’ll be trying them this summer!

  2. I especially like the zucchini cut into rounds, since it looks like a cracker-based appetizer, but with no carbs.

  3. Loved the recipe Katherine. So simple and yet so full of flavours. Great photography as usual 🙂

  4. Sounds like an excellent combination and a wonderful party finger food.

  5. Katherine,
    Mint is such a great choice for this week, and I love your zucchini appetizers- gluten free, low carb who could ask for more. Can’t wait to try them for dinner tonight!

  6. YUM!!! I’m so glad the mint is flourishing in my garden!

  7. love the Friday blog hops, should have joined a long time ago. Not sure how to add a description (grapefruit and mint sorbet) to my pic.

  8. Sounds and looks delicious! Both presentations are pretty. 🙂

  9. love your ricotta , mint rolls they looks perfectly delicious

  10. love how light and refreshing this is, definitely perfect for summer!

  11. Ahhh, I love mint! I shared an oldie but goodie, one I still like to make even several years later.

  12. Great ingredient for a blog hop, Katherine! I’ve added a couple of my most favorite uses for mint…in liquid form! 🙂

  13. What a gorgeous and light recipe! I love rolls and other cute, snack-sized dishes (even served as main course) so I will remember your courgette “trick”. I have always used aubergine this way. Thanks for this wonderful idea!

  14. I love grilled zucchini! These appetizers look perfect for any get-together! I think, even my girls will love it! Thank you so much for sharing, Katherine! Have a wonderful weekend:)

  15. Love your mint blog hop! Our mint is going crazy and I can’t wait to try your recipe with zucchini, mint and ricotta. Definitely a taste of summer! Your photo is so tempting – I’d like to pluck one off the plate to enjoy right now.

  16. Saw your guest post and it was amazing. Great job and great pics!

  17. Thanks again for such a great post and recipe Katherine! I am looking forward to browsing all of these wonderful mint recipes today! 🙂

  18. Never know how to use mint! This hop will be a precious source of info!

  19. Great recipe. I love things that use mint. It grows everywhere and I love the taste.

  20. Zucchini and mint is a terrific combination! And I love so much this recipe :)))

  21. I love zucchini and ricotta together. Try it with fennel seed sometime, too. It’s excellent. These all look delicious!

  22. This is simply stunning my friend – you outdid yourself 😀

  23. I just bought a pot of mint but I don’t have a mint recipe posted so I couldn’t join! I’m going to check out your recipe now. I’m so excited this is something I really want to make!

  24. I just had THE best herbed ricotta out at lunch with friends two weeks ago, and now I’m addicted to it! They served it with a fig compute and grilled bread, and I thought I was going to explode from all the bread I ate. I love the idea of wrapping it in grilled zucchini!

  25. Great guest post, Katherine! 🙂 I haven’t had herbed ricotta yet but that has to change immediately!

  26. Debra Kapellakis

    This looks amazing.

  27. I’ve got tons of mint in my garden at the moment, so I’m up for anything with mint in it (and before long I’ll have tons of zucchini, too!). Good recipe – thanks.

  28. What a great little appetizer Katherine! Love all the other mint recipes too =)
