Zucchini Roll-ups June 11 2014, 0 Comments

Have you ever had a pinwheel? It's a tortilla filled with all kinds of cheese, maybe olives and diced veggies. Yes, it's delicious but unfortunately, they are high in calories and carbohydrates. These Zucchini roll-ups are the perfect alternative! These tasty appetizers are perfect to serve at your next party or make them at the beginning of the week for you and your family to enjoy as a quick and easy snack! Also, I honestly love making these for dinner when I am craving something light with a nice salad!

Grill up the zucchini so it is easier to roll!
