Zucchini, Lemon and Dill Salad

Zucchini, Lemon and Dill Salad

ingredients
250g zucchini, finely sliced or grated
1 Tblspn chopped dill
0.5 Tblspn chopped mint
0.25 – 0.5 large red fresh chilli, finely chopped (or to taste, use less if a very hot chilli)

dressing
2 Tblspn lemon juice
2 Tblspn extra virgin olive oil
0.5 clove garlic, finely chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

method
Whisk the lemon juice, oil and garlic in a small bowl and season to taste.

Combine zucchini, herbs and chilli in a bowl and mix well. Pur the dressing over and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for an hour, tossing once or twice during that time, to allow the flavours to develop. (Skip this step if you don’t have time. Just leave as long as you can, and a minimum of 10 minutes.)

Bring back to room temperature and serve. It is excellent with veg fritters and patties, grilled haloumi or for vegetarian BBQs.
