Happy Friday! Today’s recipe is Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad – fresh, fruity and simply amazing!

Grilled Zucchini Strawberry Salad

The series with grilled veggie salads continue! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just joking! The thing is I spotted some ripe British strawberries while doing my weekly shopping and had to get a few packs. The strawberries I get are usually imported so you can understand my excitement when I saw these strawberries (they usually come around this time of the year). ๐Ÿ™‚

OK, let’s focus on the salad then. I find the sweet and sour combination very tasty! Apart from the strawberries and grilled zucchini, there’s also feta cheese, apricots, a few chopped up pecans and some freshly chopped basil. This is what I call a beautiful Summer salad. It’s so light and tasty, just perfect to have on a hot summer day, probably with a nice glass of white. ๐Ÿ™‚ You can have it as a quick snack too. It’s needless to say it’s healthy and low in calories. The downside is you can’t really store it for more than a day. I recommend consuming it straight after preparations. The fruit will get soggy and even might go off so have it fresh and make sure to finish it all. ๐Ÿ™‚ That was not a problem for me. ๐Ÿ™‚

And because it’s the grillingย season I think this salad will be a great addition to any BBQ. No matter what you’re making – fish or meat, this beauty will compliment both. Use as a side or as an appetizer before serving the mains, you won’t go wrong.

I kept the dressing simple as I wanted the salad to be this way – fresh and simple. So I used some olive oil, lemon juice and salt.

The pecans add a crunchy bite to it that I love in salads. Pecans seem to work quite well with fruit. You can use walnuts, too. Just add a few on top for some extra crunchiness. ๐Ÿ™‚
