Allium B Kitchen: Courgette salad
With the sun making one last push before the Autumn chill kicks in, we are rustling one last summer dinner in the hope the sun just has one last appearance left in him (yes we think the sun is a him)
This recipe can seriously only take a few minutes to prepare and is a perfect pick me up for lunch.
You will need to serve 2
2 large courgettes
2 tbsp of Pesto (homemade or store bought)
10-15 cherry tomatoes
1. Using a potato peeler, peel the courgette into small strips. (You will need to be light handed to get the smaller strips)
2. Half the cherry tomatoes and heat a pan on medium heat with a splash of olive oil
3. Once hot add your cherry tomatoes, and stir for about 5 minutes so the tomatoes are soft and slightly roasted
4. Stir your pesto into the courgette and scatter with your tomatoes
You can make quickly the night before work, or whip it up for a quick healthy dinner.
