Home-made pesto and courgetti salad

Spring is approaching and I couldn’t be happier. I thought I would share one of my favourite salads that is perfect for this time of year.

This is such a quick and easy nutritious salad, perfect for getting some extra vegetables into your diet.



  • 2 courgettes
  • Big handful of rocket



  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 handfuls spinach
  • Handful of cashew nuts
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • Olive oil
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • Salt and pepper



Add all of the ingredients for the pesto into a high-speed blender and blend until smooth, you can add more olive oil until you get your desired consistency (I like mine quite thick)

Spiralize the courgettes; if you don’t have a spiralizer you can use a potato peeler to create long strips.

Mix the noodles, rocket and pesto altogether and enjoy. I like to add roasted vegetables. It is also great with fish or grilled chicken.
