Mozzarella, avocado, tomato and courgette salad

A beautiful combination of colours, textures and flavours. Perfect for when you have a glut of courgettes! It’s helpful to see courgettes as being just as good eaten raw as they are cooked. They will open up your menu choices and bulk up summer salads.

Method

On a large plate assemble the salad ingredients.

Place the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar and shake. Drizzle over the salad.

A lovely salad to enjoy either on it’s own, or served with a flavoured yoghurt, or alongside baked salmon or a roast chicken. Delicious!

If you have time, try pouring the vinaigrette over 30 minutes in advance to really let the flavours infuse and the vegetables soften slightly.”
