  • Salt water, for covering
  • White wine vinegar, plus 1/2 cup for covering

Place the slices in a medium-sized saucepan. Cover with 2 parts salted water and 1 part vinegar. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat and allow to boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Drain the zucchini and place them into a jar or a bowl. Season with the garlic, anchovies, mint, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Add 2 cups of oil and 1/2 cup vinegar.
