Yellow & green courgette salad with salmon, feta, olives, dill, thyme & lemon
With more and more countries going into lockdown, I’m hoping that my blog can inspire some people to take this time at home to discover some new recipes, and to use fresh, seasonal ingredients as much as possible. Today’s recipe is all about courgette and fresh herbs. We’re using green and yellow courgettes in this salad, with just a few fresh herbs. Our dressing is going to be an easy one with just lemon juice, olive oil and honey. I’ve added some salmon as a protein, as I would otherwise still be hungry after eating it. You can replace the salmon by falafel, focaccia, ciabatta or even just a grilled piece of chicken or turkey. Anything goes really! To add some extra flavour I added black olives and delicious feta cheese.
I tried two ways of cooking the courgette for this recipe. First I tried just slicing it up into wedges and grilling it, but it wasn’t as nice as I had hoped so I ended up slicing it into ribbons by using a peeler. Pan fried for a few seconds in a little bit of olive oil and they were good to go!
