Zucchini Fritters

2 Zucchini and/or Yellow Squash, grated
½ tsp salt
¼ cup flour (I use whole wheat)
¼ cup of your favorite cheese, grated
1 egg, beaten
2 cloves of garlic, minced
ground pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying
Optional: dill, minced onion, rosemary

Put grated zucchini/squash in bowl and sprinkle with salt. Stir so that the salt is incorporated and wait 10 minutes. You can gather and prepare the rest of your ingredients while you wait! Using your hands or cheesecloth, squeeze as much liquid as possible from the zucchini/squash. Place drained zucchini/squash in a bowl and add flour, cheese, egg, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat. Add a few spoonfuls of batter to the pan, flatten with back of spoon or spatula, and cook until golden. Flip, cook until golden, and repeat. Enjoy immediately!
