Garden Fresh Crunchy Marrow/Zucchini/Courgette Salad

Say hello to crunchy salad !!! Say hello to this amazing, light summer salad I threw together for lunch! I really had no clue how this was going to turn out, it was a matter of using what I had in the fridge (yeah, I do that a lot) and …I surprised myself! This is the perfect summer salad for all those lucky people out there enjoying the warmth of summer. Β And, of course those that aren’t (me)….. just pretend the sun is shining and the day is good !

This is a super easy salad, and could work well just as a side salad or as a main. I am just loving the spiralized marrows, it just makes this salad so pretty :-). Just one thing, if you do make this salad, and you are wanting to make it ahead of time, don’t cut your tomatoes until you are ready to serve, otherwise your salad will become quite watery.

Garden Fresh Crunchy Marrow/Zucchini/Courgette Salad

Preparation time: Β 10 minutes

Serves 2 *

Ingredients:

2 cups spiralized marrows

1 cup chopped celery

1 cup fresh basil leaves

2 cups baby spinach leaves

2 cups exotic tomatoes, chopped/halved (or cherry tomatoes)

salt and pepper to taste

Olive Oil for drizzling

Nutritional Yeast for sprinkling on the top (optional)

Instructions:

Throw spiralized marrows, chopped celery, basil and baby spinach into a bowl.

Add tomatoes.

Season.

Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with nutritional yeast.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

 

  • This recipe can easily be halved or doubled, depending on how many people or if you are wanting it as a main or side. Β I also, used Nutritional Yeast so it is vegan, but this can be subbed with feta or any cheese of your choice if you don’t want the vegan option.

  1. I just got a spiralizer! After reading your recipes for over a year and saying I was going to, I did! Now I need the zucchinis to start coming in. (I just noticed Sarah’s comment and it appears you have started a trend – ha!) Thanks for the great recipe and the ideas.

    • Yay! I am so happy you got one ! Diana, you are going to love it ! They are so much fun, and make meal times prettier, and so much tastier. Hope the zucchini’s start coming in soon, they are awesome spiralized, and so great raw. (I quite fancy the large ones for spiralizing) πŸ™‚ Thanks Diana and my pleasure for the recipe and ideas.

  2. This sounds delicious! But I have to say I initially thought you meant bone marrow–I didn’t know zucchini goes by marrow too, haha! I love the addition of basil. Basil + tomatoes + zucchini makes for one perfect salad :). Have a great week, Lynne!

    • Oh no ! I must be more careful πŸ™‚ Here in South Africa, zucchini’s/courgettes are known as ‘marrow’s. So weird why we call it something different, I will never understand why. Thanks for being so kind. You have a good one too Kelsie.

  3. Had never heard of marrow. Had to look it up to see if it was a fruit or vegetable. Once I saw it came from the Zucchini family is was pretty obvious. Such a pretty presentation as well. Since we are just beginning summer over here, I think I will add this to my arsenal. Thanks for sharing.
