Author Notes

Courgettes or as they are also known as, Zucchinis, come in two wonderful colours, a sunny lemony yellow and a dark rich green. They are very high in water content and therefore hold their juicy light flavour with easy when BBQ'ed.
Combined with the buttery and nutty texture of charred pine seeds and the fresh taste of mint, dill and cumin this salad is perfect at room temperature and will classy up any sausage or steak. —Sandra Ramacher
