Flowers & Courgetti salad

Flowers are a healthy and quick way to make a dish tasty, elegant and colourful. Try this courgetti and chopped salad with a piece of BBQ chicken or fish to serve an impressive plate.



Serves 4

2 courgettes
2 sticks celery
150g Green beans
1 small handful edible flowers
1 small bunch fresh basil leaves
Salt (rock or himilayan) & pepper
2 tbsp rapeseed oil
Juice 1 lemon
2 tbsp sunflower seeds


Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the green beans for about 5 minutes; you want these to be tender but still bright and green! Drain and when cool, place in a bowl. Spiralise the courgette, finely chop the celery, edible flowers, basil leaves and add all to the bowl. Make the dressing by mixing the rapeseed oil and lemon juice. Dress and season the salad and mix in the sunflower seeds. Serve into bowls and garnish with a few more flowers.

Enjoy! xx
