1 red onion, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds

Heat grill to medium.
Carefully thread the onion rounds onto skewers (this will keep them in tact as rounds while grilling), making sure the skewer goes through every onion ring. (I used toothpicks)
Brush onions and zucchini rounds with 1/4 cup olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper.
