Finally my courgettes and french beans are ready to be picked! This quick salad really shows them off in all their glory. The lovely Bridget has just made a fresh batch of her incredible raspberry vinegar and it is absolutely perfect in for this dish. If you don’t have a lovely Bridget who makes awesome raspberry vinegar then you should definitely try Womersley’s Raspberry Vinegar which you can buy online.
- French beans topped and tailed
- yellow courgettes thinly sliced to the same shape and size as the beans
- mint leaves
- fennel fronds
- white poppy seeds
- onion flowers
For the dressing:
- Halen Môn salt flakes
- heaped tablespoon English mustard
- 2 tablespoons raspberry vinegar

Pop your french beans into a pan of boiling salted water for just 4 minutes then blanch in cold water and dry. Combine with your courgettes, herbs and poppy seeds. Put all your dressing ingredients into a jam jar and shake to mix then pour over your veg and mix well, sprinkle your onion flowers over the top.
