Yelllow Zucchini Salad

 
A tired old zucchini from the supermarket just wouldn't do for this salad.
But when this  yellow zucchini , freshly picked and some basil  were kindly dropped off by my friend next door it set my creative juices flowing.

Courgettes can be somewhat bland in flavour so I added a little finely grated lemon rind and some crunchy  roasted pinenuts, tossed in some basil and and dressed it with a little virgin olive oil and lemon juice. I didn't think it needed salt but you could add some to your taste just before serving. It served one, but could easily be multiplied.

Ingredients

1 yellow zucchini very finely sliced ( paper thin if you can)
6 basil leaves shredded
A couple of tablespoons of pinenuts ( dry roasted in a frying pan)
!/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind

Toss together lightly and dress with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and
1 teaspoon of lemon juice

So healthy! Enjoy!
