Zucchini, Feta & Mint Salad


    • 1 Tbs Sesame Seeds
    • 6 Medium Zucchini
    • 3 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 6 oz. Feta Cheese - Crumbled
    • A Handful of Fresh Mint Leaves
    • Sea Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper


    • 1/4 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    • 1 Tbs Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice

    • Toast the sesame seeds in a dry skillet over medium heat until golden and aromatic. Remove from the pan, let cool, and set aside until required.

    • Put all the dressing ingredients in a screw-top jar and shake well. Season to taste with salt & pepper.
    • Put the zucchini, feta, and mint in a large bowl, add the dressing, and toss well until evenly coated. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve at once.
