The courgette season has started well and these beauties have delicate soft skin and need very little cooking. This easy courgette and ricotta salad is a fantastic side to grilled lamb.
Combine all the dressing ingredients until thick. Season to taste.
Thinly slice the courgettes lengthways into long ribbons and also cut some into thin coins to give some texture to your salad.
Add the ricotta and a little dressing to the courgettes to lightly coat, season, and then mix well to combine.
Serve on a platter and cover the dish liberally with the rest of the dressing.
