This salad can be either used side salad or a main dish, I decided that this would be lunch for a couple of days so I added quinoa to make it a bit more filling. I really do love this dish as it’s warming while being light and fresh, and here’s how it comes to be:

2 large courgettes, sliced with a peeler to create long strips
1/4 diced cucumber
Juice of 1/2 orange
125g fresh spinach
1 large garlic clove
1/2 red pepper, de-seeded
1tbsp extra virgin organic coconut oil
1 chopped stick of celery
150g quinoa
Small handful of fresh chopped coriander

For the dressing:
Juice of 1/2 an orange
1tbsp red wine vegar
1tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Pepper to season

Heat the coconut oil and orange juice in a large pan and add the garlic until fragrant
Add the courgette and turn until it starts to brown.
Mix in the pepper, cucumber and celery.
Remove from the pan into a large bowl and mix in the spinach, quioa and coriander.
Sprinkle the dressing over your salad, mix again and serve.

Bon appetit!
