healthy appetizer...

these look beautiful and taste good too!!
zucchini wraps
3 zucchini (about 1/2 pound each), sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch slices
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 ounces soft goat's cheese
1 tablespoon freshly minced parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups baby spinach leaves
1/3 cup basil leaves
discard the outermost slices of zucchini and brush the rest of the slices with the oil on both sides. season with salt and pepper. place on a preheated grill or grill pan for about 4 minutes on each side, or until tender.

in a small bowl combine the goat cheese, parsley leaves and lemon juice, mashing with a fork.

put 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese mixture about 1/2-inch from the end of a zucchini slice. Top with a few spinach leaves and 1 small, or half of a large basil leaf. Roll up and place seam side down on a platter. repeat with the rest of the zucchini slices.
