A courgette quickie...

Just a quickie tonight because I can't quite believe how tired I am after the first day back at work - too tired to cook even the humblest of courgettes - so instead...uncooked courgettes.

These are from Nigellas Forever Summer, and she calls them a carpacciao of zucchini gialli, which she admits is a bit poncey - I called them yellow ribbons, but whatever you call them they're surprisingly delicious. Just ribbons of courgette, a squirt of lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, some maldon salt and pepper.

I made them to share with BH but they were gone before he made it to the table - never mind!


  1. The photo looks fairily ))) Sometimes I add cucumber ribbons.

  2. I've never eaten courgette without it being cooked first, I'll have to try it.

  3. Bless - guess school has kicked in! xxx

  4. Doesn't the time go way too fast - can't believe you're back at school already. Your courgette ribbons look good and certainly worth trying. I used to put courgettes in salad, but haven't managed to keep up with picking them this year, so they've always been a bit too overgrown for this.

  5. Thanks everyone - Mrs N you are so right , 2 days of school and I can barely stay awake to spell my own name, never mind type it! Youve got a good point mangocheeks, the lemon and salt on these really bring out the flavour, but theyre definitley a no fuss dish!
