Simple and delicious this vegan Marinated Courgette Salad with Capers & Olives is bursting with flavours. It can be served on its own or as a side dish. A slice of crunchy bread is ideal to sponge off the juices.
Marinated in olive oil and lemon juice, the thin courgette ribbons can be eaten raw. If you have never eaten raw courgettes I do recommend you try it out as they are simply delicious with a slight crunch that is usually lost when cooking.
I love mixing yellow and green courgettes, they look so pretty together. However you can make this salad with green courgettes only.
I used juicy caper berries for this recipe but it also works with capers. Caper berries are available from most supermarkets and worth looking out for. They are much bigger than regular capers and have an usual eye catching shape which looks fantastic on a plate.
