Summer Salads

Yellow Zucchini, Herb and Feta Salad

Spicy Garden Salad

For the Zucchini Salad:
1 large homegrown yellow zucchini (allow it to grow for 2 weeks) or 2 small ones
Fresh garden herbs: basil & mint
Marinated Feta
1 tbsp Lemon Myrtle Olive Oil
1 tbsp Lemon juice

Shave long slices of zucchini with a peeler into a bowl.
Toss the lemon juice, oil and half your herbs through.
Garnish with herbs and Feta.

For the Spicy Garden Salad:
A few handfuls of mixed spicy lettuce
A handful of heirloom cherry, grape and pear tomatoes
1 fresh young fennel, white part finely sliced
Fresh herbs: basil, dill, chives
White caramelised balsamic vinegar

Lay the lettuce out on a nice big salad plate
Arrange the tomatoes, fennel and herbs over the top.
Drizzle with the balsamic.
Garnish with Nasturtium leaves - they are spicy too.

We had these with Morrocan BBQ Chicken:
