Move over boring salads..say “Hello” to Carrot & Courgette Relish!

IMG_1103

I love pickled veg!  It tastes so good and is a great accompaniment to almost anything!

I love to add this courgette and carrot relish to my salads to make them more interesting throughout the week.

This only takes 10 minutes to make too!

Ingredients/Equipment-

Half a courgette

Half a carrot

White wine vinegar

1/2 teaspoon of sugar (optional)

Grater, bowl and chopping board.

Method-

Grate both the courgette and carrot onto a chopping board.

Then pour 1-2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar into a bowl with the sugar (optional).

Add the grated vegetables and mix with clean hands.

Leave the relish to sit for a few minutes then mix again with your hands to thoroughly coat the vegetables.

There will be some excess liquid that the vegetables haven’t absorbed so you can drain this if you wish. I leave it overnight like this then drain the following day.

Try it and let me know what you think.
