After my last successful courgette and rice wine vinegar dish I was eager to try another one. I love strong flavours and I must warn you, this dressing is very very strong. I used lots of fresh grated ginger and kept the seeds in the chilli pepper, but I realise that that may be a little harsh for many people and you may want to use less ginger than you can see in my picture. However, courgette has a strong flavour of its own that holds up well against the strong flavours in the dressing. This is certainly not a salad where you can only taste the dressing. I also found it a nice change to use courgettes in this type of recipe as usually I use them in more Mediterranean style dishes.
Ingredients – Serves 2 as a side dish
1 courgette, sliced approx 8mm thick
1 small green chilli, sliced
Small knob of ginger, grated
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp flavourless oil
How to Make Courgette Salad with Ginger Dressing
- Toss the courgette slices with 1 tbsp oil then place on a hot griddle pan. Cook for up to 10 minutes on each side until they are cooked through. When cooked, remove from the pan and leave to cool.
