Courgette salad with raisins, olives and goat's cheese

This salad is good for a light summer lunch. You can substitute goats’s cheese with feta or vegan cheese. I like this one and it’s available in larger health shops. I buy it from Wimbledone based Health Zone.

For two portions you will need:

Dressing:

1 tbsp sherry
1 tbsp sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp of any Omega oil (I use Hemp seed oil, which you can buy in larger supermarkets or health shops)
Half teaspoon of mustard
sea salt/freshly ground pepper

Salad:

50g raisins
100-120g cheese of your choice
Handfull of pitted black olives
2 medium or 1 large courgette
2-3 tomatoes
pack of mixed salad leaves or 1 lollo rosso lettuce
1 tsp oregano

1. Make the dressing by combining all ingridients together and whisk them lightly.

2. Wash, trim and slice courgettes, saute them in a little bit of olive oil until they are just soft. Alternatively, you can put them under a hot grill and cook on both sides until soft, but still crunchy. For a healthier option – use them raw 🙂 Slice tomatoes.

3. Arrange salad leaves, courgettes, tomato slices, olives, raisins and cheese on two plates. Pour over the salad dressing and sprinkle with oregano before serving.
