Farm Chef recipe: Courgette salsa verde

The salsa verde courgettes is a flexible dish. If a cold salad isn’t what you fancy, slice the courgettes into rounds or batons and fry in a small amount of oil until they are going golden at edges, then take them off the heat and toss in the salsa just before serving. The dressing can be used as easily on new potatoes, pasta, or tomatoes.
