Low Carb Zucchini “Courgettes” Salad

Yield: 6
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Zucchini stands in for potatoes in this low-carb makeover of the classic summer fave, potato salad. All of the creamy flavor, and (almost) none of the carbs! Perfect for picnics and barbecues.

Ingredients

  • 900 g zucchini
  • 2 tbsp butter or olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 75 g celery stalks, finely sliced
  • 50 g chopped scallions
  • 225 ml mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp Dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. Peel and cut the zucchini into pieces that are about half an inch (1-1.5 cm) thick. Use a spoon to remove the seeds. Place in a colander and add salt. Leave for 5-10 minutes and then cautiously press out the water.
  2. Fry the cubes in butter for a couple of minutes over medium heat. They should not brown, just slightly soften. Set aside to cool.
  3. Mix the other ingredients in a large bowl and add the zucchini once it's cool.

Notes

Tip! You can prepare the salad 1-2 days ahead of time; the flavors only enhance with time. For tasty variety, go ahead and add a chopped hard-boiled egg!
