  1. In a non-stick pan, cook zucchini in 1/4 cup water and olive oil for 5 minutes. Toss with herbs and set aside.
  2. Add balsamic vinegar to a shallow bowl. In alternating layers, arrange avocado, mozzarella, and tomato slices. Top with warm zucchini and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Handy Hint: Slide leftovers into a whole-wheat pita for easy lunch.
