Cranberry Zucchini Wedges

Submitted by: SRWOODSY

Introduction

This recipe came from the Aug/Sept 2004 issue of Taste of Home. Submitted by Redawna Kalnchuk from Waskatenau, Alberta. She says, "I try to slip zucchini into as many dishes as possible. These cake wedges have wonderful flavor and a tender texture, and are pretty, too -- with bits of pineappe, cranberries, and zucchini. They're great for brunch." I made some adjustments to make them healthier. This recipe came from the Aug/Sept 2004 issue of Taste of Home. Submitted by Redawna Kalnchuk from Waskatenau, Alberta.
