Monday's Recipe: Courgette Salad

I unfortunately forgot to snap a good picture of this delicious dish yesterday, but I will be making it again very soon so I'll get one then :) This salad is very simple and good for BBQ's (that's where I first had it!). All you need is:

A courgette (Zucchini)
a cheese grater
chili flakes (half a fresh chili would be better)
lemon juice
olive oil
garlic (fresh or granules)
salt and pepper

Cut the courgette in half and grate it length ways on the cheese grater - I used the biggest hole setting but you choose! Be careful with your fingers, but make sure you get the whole length of the courgette for bigger pieces.

Drain any excess fluid, add the seasoning, sprinkle in the garlic granules (less than half a teaspoon), the chili flakes (or fresh chili - again, less that half a teaspoon or to your taste), a teaspoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of olive oil, with as much fresh mint as you'd like.

Mix it up and give it a taste, see if you think you need any more ingredients and enjoy. Goes great on a burger or just as a side salad!
