A simple courgette salad

Our courgettes are producing a bumper crop on the Quest For Veg allotment plot.

Colourful courgettes - a selection of different varieties from the allotment

This versatile vegetable can be added to any number of dishes – and we have been enjoying them in our usual curries and pasta sauces. But when they are this young and fresh, they are fantastic eaten simply as a salad.

Yesterday’s lunch consisted of young courgettes sliced very thinly, tossed in rapeseed oil and seasoned with salt and pepper. Keeping it simple allows you to enjoy the delicate flavour.

I simply added a little grated cheddar. But toasted pine nuts and a squeeze of lemon juice would work very well – I just need to remember to add them to the shopping list!

What’s your favourite way to enjoy courgettes?
