Herbed Goat Cheese and Zucchini Rolls


The pairing of tangy herbed goat cheese and grilled zucchini makes for a delicious sandwich filling.


  • 1 zucchini or yellow squash, sliced into ¼-inch-thick rounds

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 ten-and-a-half-ounce log goat cheese

  • ½ cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 8 sourdough rolls or semolina raisin rolls

  • ½ cup Olive Tapenade (optional)

  • 8 small lettuce leaves, such as Bibb


  1. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Combine zucchini, olive oil, salt, and pepper in a small bowl; toss to combine. Grill until lightly browned and tender.

  2. Roll goat cheese in chopped parsley; slice into 8 rounds. Cut rolls in half; spread the bottom halves with olive tapenade, if using. Layer with grilled zucchini, lettuce, and herbed goat cheese; top with other roll half.
