5 minute courgette salad
This is my go-to refreshing summer salad, perfect to go with a BBQ or accompany your main show stopper, and a great way to use up all those courgettes in your fridge or garden.
2 courgettes (try and get a yellow and a green one for great colour)
1 small chilli
1/2 garlic clove
1 large lemon
5 sprigs mint
1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Pinch of salt
- Peel your courgettes into ribbons, get as much off it as you can, and then chop the last bits up and place in a mixing bowl.
- Add the olive oil, salt and lemon juice and massage the courgette
- Finely chop the chilli and mint, and add to the bowl. If you have a microplane use to grate the garlic, otherwise finely chop or use a garlic press. Season to taste.
- Mix altogether and place in a large salad bowl. Grate the lemon zest over the top to finish!
