Grilled pineapple courgette salad
2 courgettes, cut lengthways into 4 strips (each)
1 pineapple, sliced, skin removed
2 tablespoons fresh basil, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
3 tablespoons olive oil
1.5 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Heat up a griddle pan and grill the courgettes for 3-4 minutes on a medium/high heat turning them over a few times. Transfer the courgettes into a strainer and leave for about 20 minutes until the excess water has drained. Cube and set aside.
Grill the pineapple slices in a griddle pan for 2 minutes on each side, set aside for several minutes and drain off excess water. Cube the pineapple (optional).
Fry the garlic for a couple of minutes using 1 tablespoon of oil, not allowing it to brown. Transfer into a bowl, add the oil and balsamic vinegar. Combine the courgettes and pineapple, pour in the garlic mixture, add the basil, season and serve!
