"This is a refreshing and tasty Mediterranean recipe. You can also use yellow squash to cook it. It is so easy, and it goes well with fresh, crusty bread."

  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the sugar, then add the chopped zucchini, dill, and rice. Cook and stir until the zucchini is softened, about 5 minutes. Pour in the water, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the mixture until the rice is cooked, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the mixture cool to lukewarm.
  2. Make a sauce by mixing the yogurt, garlic, and salt in a bowl. Serve over the lukewarm zucchini and rice.

This was extremely simple and delicious! Great for a cool summer evening. I used cucumber as I didn't have zucchini on hand and it turned out surprisingly well. The dill smells so good while ...

Delicious! My husband and I both loved this recipe. He didn't really use the sauce as he isn't a huge fan of any yogurt sauce, but I used it and saved the left over sauce to dip fresh veggies ...

Very good and fresh tasting. Complimented the Shish Tawook Marinated Chicken well. I cut back just a bit on the dill as my children are iffy on it.

We all really liked this. It's such a light dish, but very flavorful. I didn't have quite enough fresh dill, so I added a bit of dried as well. I did have some trouble getting my rice to cook...

This was fantastic! I made this as a side dish when my parents came over for dinner, and they absolutely loved it. Will definitely make this again!

Great side dish if you want to cut down the amount of carbs. This is soooo good. I thought at first that this is maybe too much dill but it's perfect.
