Zucchini/Courgette, Mango & Lime Salad

Zucchini/Courgette & Lime Salad
Such a light & refreshing salad. Courgettes and lime are a perfect combo & with a little kick of chilli and the crunch of the red onion this makes a perfect dish.   It's such a wonderful, easy recipe to make. Just use a sharp potato peeler to make the courgette & mango ribbons. Fabulous to serve as a side dish for BBQ'd meats or fish.

Recipe adapted from K O Rasoi  
1 under-ripe mango, peeled
1 large yellow courgette
½ red onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 tbsp fresh coriander or flat leaved parsley, finely chopped
1 chopped red chilli

80g demerara sugar
Juice of 1 lime
½ tsp Black onion seed
Pinch sea salt

1. Using a potato peeler, shave ribbons from both the mango and the courgette. Add the finely chopped onion, fresh coriander and chilli. Toss together.
2. In a small saucepan, lightly toast the black onion (kalonji) seeds until aromatic. Next, add the sugar lime juice and salt. Continue heating & stir well to dissolve the sugar .
3. Cool the dressing & add to the salad just before serving.
