5 minute courgette salad

5 minute courgette salad

July 27, 2020

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.

You'll need:

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


  1. 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.
  2. Add the olive oil, salt and lemon juice and massage the courgette
  3. 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.
  4. Mix altogether and place in a large salad bowl. Grate the lemon zest over the top to finish!
