I've only ever made Salsa Verde or Pork Green Chili with tomatillos...As for the Zucchini...pick it before it's monster and pickle them.

Large zucchini can be grated / shredded an cooked in a flour, butter, vinegar, and sour cream sauce. This dish can be eaten hot or at near room temperature.
They can also be baked stuffed with a ground beef and or pork sausage, breadcrumb, egg, grated cheese, pepperoncini, and minced squash innards filling topped with mozzarella and a tomato sauce.

Love your veg garden! It looks great. I use tomatillos for salsa as Picanis said and I make a relish with added chilli and onion. They are also good for making chutney and jam. They make a lovely soup too and many more things. Let me know if you want the relish, chutney or jam recipe :)

I always have plenty of courgettes this time of year - I like to fry some chopped smoked bacon, courgette and garlic. Mix in with some creme fraiche and cooked pasta. Grate some mature cheese on top for a fantastic light lunch.
