Print Raw courgette salad

The UK courgette season is a short one, usually lasting for just July and August. When they are fresh you need do little more than thinly slice and thoughtfully dress them.


  • 2 courgettes
  • Small bunch fresh mint, finely sliced
  • Small bunch fresh basil, torn
  • 1 lemon
  • ½ red chilli, finely chopped
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Using a potato peeler, peel the courgettes into long thin ribbons. Season.
  2. Throw together with the mint and basil and add lemon juice and chopped chilli to your taste.
