I first tried this recipe as a side salad to go with barbecued meats. It’s so simple, I did wonder if it might be just a tad….boring….but I was delightfully surprised – it is a lovely, fresh salad with the added joy provided by the crunch of the pine nuts. Easy, quick, different and delicious!
What you need…
1 large courgette, trimmed
Sea salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons good quality balsamic vinegar
Handful of pine nuts
What to do…
Grate the courgette into your serving bowl. Season liberally with salt and pepper and stir through.
Pop the pine nuts into a small, dry saucepan and dry fry for just a couple of minutes.
Mix together the oil and vinegar.
Mix the dressing into the courgette and tip over the pine nuts. Serve – so simple but absolutely delicious!
