Courgetti Salad

I recently made this delicious courgetti salad for a ladies lunch and it went down an absolute treat. It's so light and works perfectly as a side dish for those summer lunches or bbq's - I served this with some poached salmon.

What you'll need:
(Serves 4-5 persons)

-2 Courgettes
-About a handful of sun-dried tomatoes - I like to use ones that come in olive oil
-1 packet of 'Tilda' microwaveable Brown Rice & Quinoa - Of course you can boil both of these fresh but these ready made packets are so tasty and take 2 minutes to cook.
-1tsp Olive oil
-Salt & Pepper for seasoning

How to make:

Using a spiralizer, create the courgetti then place it into a non-stick saucepan with the olive oil and salt & pepper, allow to simmer on a low heat for about 5-10 minutes (don't let it fry) - this will allow the courgetti to soften a little.
Chop up the sun-dried tomatoes into small chunks. Set aside some of the oil the tomatoes come in to later pour over the salad.
Heat up the rice & quinoa then place it into a big bowl along with the courgetti and sun-dried tomatoes. Give it all a good mix and season -can be served either hot or cold, both just as delicious.
