Not only are these appetizers incredibly simple, they’re delicious and pretty. Make up a batch or two for your next party and let the compliments roll in. For a little extra color on the table, consider using some summer squash in place of some of the zucchini. For a stiffer pesto, start with part of the oil and drizzle in until you’ve reached the desired consistency.

•2 lbs. zucchini, thinly sliced lengthwise
• 9 oz. frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and well-drained
• Zest of 1 lemon
• 1 T. fresh lemon juice
• 2 cloves garlic, minced

• 1/4 c. walnuts
• 1/4 t. salt

• 1/4 c. extra virgin olive oil

1.Heat the grill to high and quickly sear the zucchini.
2.Combine remaining ingredients in a food processor and pulse, scraping down the sides of the bowl, until pesto reaches desired texture.
3.Spread a tablespoon or so of pesto onto each piece of zucchini. Roll and serve.
