Making noodles out of courgettes takes some time. But the effort it so worth it for this really tasty courgette salad. If you make it, keep the scraps to make a courgette velouté. I shall be sharing that recipe with you soon.
Head straight on to the Recipe For Courgette Salad ♥
When we were on the barge with Mark we were inundated with mosquitoes. I have these stick on pads that we use to deter them. They last through the night and use essential oils to keep the mozzies at bay. However, despite Mark putting 2 up in his ‘room’ they did not work. There were just too many of them! So the next day we went into a pharmacy and purchased some spray. The spray was not something I would normally buy, but needs must as the saying goes. The repellent worked perfectly well, and we slept in peace for the next 6 nights. When we got home the first thing I looked for was a DEET free mosquito spray. It also had to be non-flammable so that we could fly with it. I found one that uses citronella oil, so it is a plant-based formula.

And it is perfectly safe for humans, pets and the environment. It can be applied to the skin but I have found that a few sprays into the room works perfectly well. When Carli mentioned that Hannah had been bitten by mosquitoes I gave her the spray from next to our bed. I had another one in our travel suitcase so all I had to do was get it out. But I forgot and it was only when we were lying in bed and I heard that tell-tale buzz that I remembered. And I really did not feel like the effort of getting the spray out of the case. However, when I woke up the next morning I sort of regretted that choice. I have mosquito bites that are so itchy! Do you get mosquitoes where you live?

Mm, this sounds so good! I got a spiraliser attachment for my KitchenAid which I am still yet to use – I now have a reason to get it out of the box! 🙂
Lucky you – I have a hand one from Kilner 🙂
Hi Tandy! This salad looks marvelous, as always. And yes, I suppose you are right that making noodles out of courgettes takes time, but it’s fun, too! I use that shredder from Garrett Wade and it works like a dream. My sister got me a spiralizer last Christmas and that’s the other noodle method for me. My kids like to make courgette noodles in the kitchen with me. Fun times!
Nice to have ‘slave labour’ haha. I need to borrow them 😉
Interesting. I’ve always parboiled mine first before eating. But I put them in my salads raw, so now I’m thinking this is a wonderful salad idea!
Thank you Mimi 🙂
