Zucchini salad recipe

It’s actually way too hot to cook, let alone eat very heavy, hot food. On that kind of days a nice salad is a good solution. A zucchini salad is always a good idea on hot summer days.


  • 1 large on 2 smaller zucchini
  • juice of half a lemon
  • handful of pine nuts
  • handful of raisins
  • fresh mint and coarse salt to taste

Preperation of the zucchini salad

When making the salad for 2-4 people, as a side dish, you will need 1 large or 2 smaller zucchini. Cut it into slices or strips and drizzle with olive oil. Make sure the zucchini is completely covered with the oil. Grill the slices in a hot pan. Don’t overcrowd the pan or it will be more stewed than fried zucchini. It is better to do several badges one after the other. Make sure the zucchini gets a golden brown color.

Set the zucchini aside and toast a handful of pine nuts, add coarse salt to the kernels as soon as they come off the heat. Mix the zucchini and pine nuts and add the juice of half a lemon, a handful of sweet raisins and fresh mint to taste. Mix it all well and put in the fridge. Let the salad cool down well before serving.

By way of variation, you can also add some pieces of goat cheese just before serving. Voila, you have a delicious, healthy zucchini salad. Prefer potato? Read our recipe for ensalada rusa here.
