Although you can eat it warm, this fresh frittata can also be a make-ahead brunch dish. Serving it at room temperature means the salad on top won't wilt (and your cooking work is done before the guests arrive).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, feta, Pecorino Romano, flour, dill, chopped mint, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper.

  • In a 10-inch ovenproof nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high. Add green onions; cook until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add zucchini; cook, tossing occasionally, until just tender and beginning to turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add garlic; cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Season lightly with salt to taste. Reduce heat to low.

  • Add egg mixture; stir gently to distribute zucchini. Cover skillet and cook until eggs are partially set, about 6 minutes. Uncover pan; transfer to oven. Bake until set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Loosen frittata and immediately slide onto a serving plate.

  • While frittata bakes (or while it cools, if serving at room temperature), prepare salad: In a medium bowl, combine lemon juice, 1 teaspoon olive oil, and a pinch each salt and sugar. Add arugula, parsley and mint leaves; toss gently. To serve: Slice frittata; top with salad.
