A fancy thinly sliced courgette ribbon salad is sure to be a perfect side to impress your guests. This ribbon salad is a creative way to serve courgette (zucchini). I use a mandoline to make slicing the courgette thinly easy. For extra healthiness, I add edamame beans, then finish with a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds on top, a splash of fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil to serve. We love this serve with roasted carrots and parsnips.
