I love having our new barbie – summer days with some grilled meats and a light salad – it’s perfect paleo combination. Easy, healthy and delightful.
Whilst hubby was cooking some delicious lamb cutlets I whipped up a little salad of zucchini, cucumber, feta and herbs from our garden.
INGREDIENTS (more than enough for 2 people)
. 1 large zucchini
. 1/2 small cucumber
. feta, crumbled
. pine nuts, toasted
. 1 tbsp mint, shredded
. 1 tbsn parsley, chopped
. 2 tbsn olive oil
. 1 tbsn lemon juice
. sea salt
1. Mix together oil, lemon juice, a large pinch of salt and herbs in a jar. Add in a spoonful of the vinegar the capers have come from if you prefer a tangier dressing – yum 🙂 Shake well and set aside.
2. Using a vegetable peeler, finely peel long ribbons of zucchini into a bowl. Slice the cucumber very finely into rounds and add to mix. Toss over feta, pine nuts and capers, as much or as little as you like and then dress with the prepared salad dressing.
3. Serve immediately with your choice of grilled meat.
This was a very simple salad that added a little ‘gourmet’ factor to our dinner. It went very well with perfectly grilled lamb chops. I just wish I had made more! Yum!!!!
