Zucchini, Feta and Mint Salad

An easy zucchini salad flavoured with mint and feta.  Simple to make and delicious to eat.

Zucchini salad

This is one of my favourite summer salads and will often appear as a side dish when I am having a bbq.  You can cook this on the bbq or under the grill.  Or on a griddle pan to get those lovely dark lines on the the veggies!  It is alight, summery dish and the combination of mint, feta and zucchini is just superb.   Don’t be stingy with the mint either!  Make it a large handful!

You can play around with the proportion of the ingredients…the below is for 3 -4 people.   And it really depends upon the size of the zucchini.  At the moment the large ones that we have in our supermarkets are massive!  I only needed two to make a good sized dish!  Normally there are only small ones for sale.   For those of you who are lucky to grow your own, I am envious!
