For the Zucchini:
2 Ea Zucchini, Sliced on the bias one centimeter thick
1 t Olive Oil
TT Sea Salt
Heat up the grill, in a bowl toss zucchini with olive oil and sea salt, grill the zucchini on both sides until almost cooked through, remove the zucchini from the grill just before they are done, as they will continue to cook a bit even after they are removed from the heat and you want them to remain firm enough to hold the bruschetta topping.
For the Bruschetta:
Place the grilled zucchini on a serving tray and top with the tomato mixture. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan over the zucchini bruschetta and serve!
