Need a delicious salad for lunch? Look no further. This simple salad has bags of flavour and takes only a few minutes to make.
What you need:
2 medium sized courgettes
1 small bunch of rocket (you can add a bit of baby spinach, too, if you want a more leafy salad)
50g shaved Västerbotten cheese (or mature Präst cheese if you can’t get Västerbotten).
50g flaked almonds
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Shave the courgettes into thin strips length ways – this is best done using a mandolin (the slicer, not the musical instrument) or even a flat metal cheese slicer. The strips need to be quite thin.
Add the courgette to a big bowl, add the salad leaves and mix. Then add the cheese and fold again.
Make the dressing by combining the vinegars and oil in a bowl, whisk well, season with salt and pepper. Dress the salad (you will have too much dressing, you can reserve the rest for next time).
Arrange on a serving plate, scatter with toasted almonds and serve immediately.
