The trick to this salad, ensuing the flavours are well combined and capturing that light crunch, is to very finely shred the vegetables. I use a mandolin or peeler, and then slice them again into long thin ribbons. The little effort is worth it!

  1. Prepare the salad ingredients (courgette, apple, cucumber and lemon rind) using a mandolin or peeler to create long ribbons, then slice these into fine strips.
