Recipe: Jamie Oliver's Courgette and Boccocini Salad

This is a lovely little salad recipe that Nick made me last week, after we'd both seen Jamie Oliver make it on his "30 Minute Meals" program. Very simple and very refreshing I thought, and tasty too. We made half the amount Jamie made on his show, as it was to serve four- but other than that we followed the recipe to the letter. I will definitely be making this again, it is delicious, however i think that the salad would be nicer with some creamy goats cheese or some feta instead of the boccocini (mini mozzarella balls- sometimes called Mozzarella pearls in supermarkets) as I didn't think they actually added much to the dish. Nick actually took the picture of this dish with his iphone, they've got such fantastic cameras on them havent they??

Courgette and Mozzarella Salad (serves 2 as a side dish)

1 yellow courgette, peeled thinly into strips (discarding the middle bit)
1 green courgette, peeled thinly into strips (discarding the midd bit)
1 red chilli, very finely chopped
1 squeeze fresh lemon
Handful fresh mint, very finely chopped
salt and pepper
10 Boccocini

1. Mix all the ingredients together (except the boccocini) and season to taste. Lay the courgettes onto a platter and top with the boccocini- serve!
