Ribboned Courgette Salad with Lemon Zest & Parmesan

18 April 2021

I love the simplicity of this salad, it’s super easy and super quick, but definitely delivers in flavour. As a salad just by itself it might not be filling enough, but a great side dish, for example with pasta dishes, pizza’s or at a BBQ.

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 large courgette
  • Juice of half a lemon, more to taste
  • Zest of half a lemon, more to taste & serve
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pepper & Salt
  • 1 tbsp parmesan, grated, more to taste
  • ± 1 tsp of honey, optional

Instructions

1

Wash the courgette and chop off the ends.

2

With a vegetable peeler or a mandolin shave the courgette into thin strips. Discard the pips in the center.

3

Add the strips to a large bowl.

4

In a sealable jar add the lemon juice, lemon zest and olive oil. Seal jar and shake well.

5

Taste and season with pepper and salt

6

If you like you can add a drop of honey to make it sweeter, I find it depends on the main dish it accompanies, it's up to you.

7

Taste and adjust to your liking.

8

Pour the dressing over the courgette and toss well, coating the courgette on all sides. I like to use my hands for this.

9

Serve in a nice bowl and sprinkle with parmesan and some extra lemon zest.
