Zucchini aka Courgettes in the UK as you all know are pretty bland and that is the reason I doused these with some zingy lemony oil.
I am sharing this simple Oven Baked Lemon Zucchini and New Potato Salad with Soups, Salads and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen.
Lemon Zucchini and New Potato Salad
4 tablespoons olive oil
Juice of 2 large lemons
Handful o f fresh mint, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
500g new potatoes, (optional parboiled and )sliced in half
4 courgettes, sliced into bite size chunks
1 large red onion, cut into 6 wedges
4 cloves of garlic, still in papery skin
In a bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, mint and season to taste.
Then stir in the chopped vegetables.
Transfer to a large baking dish and roast in over for 35 - 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender, turning half-way through the cooking.
