This summer, we’re bringing you 12 weeks of recipes designed with busy schedules and flexibility in mind. For plenty of Greek-style flavor, we’re coating sautéed vegetables in a creamy tzatziki (or cucumber yogurt) sauce––elevated with a bit of lemon purée––to layer onto delightfully chewy focaccia.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the zucchini into 1/4-inch rounds. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; remove the cores, then thinly slice into rings. Combine in a bowl. Quarter the bread, then halve each quarter horizontally. Roughly chop the lettuce. Halve the tomatoes. In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, za’atar, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the halved tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. To make the sauce, in a separate large bowl, combine the tzatziki, oregano, lemon purée, and feta (crumbling before adding); season with salt and pepper.

2 Cook the zucchini:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the zucchini rounds in an even layer; season with salt and pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and softened. Transfer to a plate. Cover with foil to keep warm.

Cook & dress the remaining vegetables:
3 Cook & dress the remaining vegetables:

In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion and peppers; season with salt and pepper.
