Broad Bean, Courgette and Mint Salad

broad bean courgette and mint salad

This fresh tasting salad is so simple yet delicious! It has a lovely flavour and a lightness which makes it ideal for pairing with other dishes, such as as a side dish at BBQs or to incorporate into picnics. It's become my go-to dish to take along to group BBQs etc.. as it always proves so popular. If you can't get hold of fresh broad beans, feel free to use frozen- I've tested this and they work well.

Three great health benefits: boosts immunity, beneficial for digestive health, good source of fibre

Serves 4 as a side dish

2 generous cups baby broad beans
3 courgettes (mine weighed 300g)
Handful of fresh mint leaves, chopped
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Juice of a lemon
Sea salt & black pepper

1) Blanch the broad beans in boiling water to cook. Drain and set aside to cool.
2) Cut the ends off the courgettes but leave the skin on. Using a potato peeler, shred the courgettes lengthways into ribbons. Place in a bowl along with the cooled broad beans and mint.
3) Add the olive oil and lemon juice to the vegetables and season with salt & pepper, to taste. Stir well to combine.
