Guess what is in season? Zucchini.
Summer is the perfect time to savor just-harvested zucchini. It's peak season is June through late August, but you may see zucchini in markets in some regions year-round. With its slightly curved cylinder-like shape, this green summer squash is perfect for blending with other ingredients or in simple preparations highlighting the taste of fresh herbs. Because zucchini has a high water content, it doesn't require much cooking; raw, it adds nice texture to a salad of greens or a crudités plate. Like its yellow summer squash counterpart, zucchini is also a good source of vitamins A and C, and fiber.  Credit: 
Grilled Beef Braciole with Zucchini Relish

1 - 2 lbs round steak, pounded to 1/4 thickness
2 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoon chopped basil
1 tablespoon of oregano
2 tablespoons zucchini relish
1/4 cup of grated pecorino Romano cheese

Step by step:

Heat the grill to high. Place the steak on a flat service and pound the steak to 1/4 thickness. Rub olive oil over steak. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle chopped basil, oregano and zucchini relish over the steak.  
Shred cheese over the steak, leaving 1/2 inch border around the sides.
Roll the meat up like a jelly roll and use tooth picks or twine to hold the meat together. Brush the entire outside of the steak with the oil and salt and pepper. 

Place on grill, seam side up and grill until golden brown on all sides.  It will need about 10 minutes on each side. 

Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes prior to slicing. Slice 1/2 inch thick slices. Serve with fresh vegetables and potatoes. Enjoy!
