Courgetti Confetti Salad – Make this for your Valentine!

You need:

3 medium courgettes (zucchini)

2 large apples

2 stalks of celery

2 spring onions (scallions)

2 limes

10g Fresh parsley

10g Fresh coriander (cilantro)

You will also need a tiny cookie cutter to make your ‘courgetti confetti’. I have used a star shape but for those of you planning a romantic Valentine meal you could use little hearts.

Top and tail your courgette and slice thickly into discs then use your cookie cutter to turn each disc into a shape. Add your shapes to a large bowl. Juice the limes and pour over the courgette stars, mix well. Next slice an apple into wide slices and cut those into stars too and add to the bowl. Finely chop the celery, spring onions, parsley and coriander and add these to your bowl. Mix everything really well and leave to stand for at least half an hour to let the flavours infuse.

 

Enjoy as a light lunch or as a cute garnish salad at your main meal.
