Ingredients

  • 1 kg green and yellow baby zucchini, sliced into thin rounds (cutting on the diagonal)
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 2 lemons, zested and juiced
  • 1 tbs wholegrain mustard
  • pepper
  • 100 g flaked almonds, lightly toasted
  • 1 bunch mint leaves, torn

Method

  1. Place the yellow and green zucchini in a bowl.
  2. Combine the oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, mustard and pepper in a small bowl. Mix well to make the dressing.
  3. Toss the dressing gently through the zucchini, ensuring it coats all the slices. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
  4. When ready to serve, spread the zucchini slices and their dressing across a platter. Scatter with almonds, mint and freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately.
