Quick Appetizer Zucchini Tart

This recipe I call “Jacques Zucchini Tart.” It is the perfect appetizer – think chilled rosé with a savoury, lightly salted snack that takes about 30 minutes to pull together. Your guests will be impressed and assume it was a big effort, but as our host at a charming self-catered villa in the Languedoc Jacques explained it is just darn good.
