Quick Courgette Salad


If like me, you’re a salad lover or simply trying to get the carbs out of the way, this salad is an absolute must for you.

It’s made in a matter of minutes and can be had as a meal by itself or liven up any roast, barbeque or jazz up a burger. Even the mundane fish and chips can be served up with some courgette salad instead of the usual mushy peas.

Try it. I promise you will fall in love with its stunning flavours.



Olive oil- 1 tbsp

Lemon juice- 1tsp

Honey- 1 tsp

Poppy seeds- 2 tsp, roasted

Garlic clove, grated- 1

Salt- to taste

Pepper- to taste

Courgette Salad7


  1. Grate the courgettes on the coarse side of your grater. I used my fabulous Julienne peeler from Oxo for this. It just does the work in minutes.
  2. If you have white poppy seeds, dry roast them in a little pan. They do fly around a bit, but that can be sorted with a little lid. I think toasted poppy seeds taste nice.
  3. Mix the honey, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic cloves well to make a dressing. I find my little Salad shaker from OXO comes in handy for this.
  4. Toss the grated courgette with the dressing.
  5. Add in the salt and pepper at the very end as the courgettes tend to leave a lot of water as soon as salt is added in.
