Grilled Zucchini & Candied Feta Salad

I saw this recipe, or something very similar, in a food magazine a couple of years ago that I have since lost. The candied feta gives it an interesting twist. This makes an excellent side salad to accompany barbecued meat.

4 zucchini cut diagonally into 1/2 cm wide pieces
small handful fresh oregano leaves
small handful pine nuts lightly toasted
100gm firm feta cheese
1 tbs extra virgin olive oil for grilling the zucchini
2 tbs extra virgin olive oil for the salad dressing
1 tbs aged red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp sugar
salt & pepper for seasoning to taste

Pre-heat a fan forced oven to 120C. Crumble the feta onto a sheet of baking paper on a flat baking tray and sprinkle over with the sugar. Place in the oven for 30 to 35 minutes, remove and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. 

Mix the 1 tbs of oil in a bowl with the zucchini pieces and BBQ over a hot grill until soft, turning frequently ensuring it doesn't burn. Once cooked remove from the grill and place back into the mixing bowl, allowing it to cool for 15 minutes.

Mix all ingredients together in the mixing bowl then transfer to a salad bowl to serve.
