Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this salad ahead of time?
Once you add the dressing to the courgette ribbons this should be and served immediately. If preparing ahead, simply keep the dressing separate from the courgettes and herbs until ready to serve. The courgette ribbons and herbs will keep for 1-2 days in the fridge, stored in air tight containers.
Can I make this salad vegan?
Yes. Simply use coconut yogurt instead of dairy for the creamy yogurt base.
