roasted zucchini and kale salad

This light and healthy salad is quick and easy to prepare and only requires a few simple ingredients. The citrus zest and dill leaves a refreshing taste and is the perfect solution for a quick meal.


Yoghurt dill sauce:

  • ½ cup plain yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon of dill (chopped)
  • ½ lemon zest
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch of salt


  1. Warm up a fry pan to medium heat.
  2. Slice the zucchinis into discs, 5mm wide and toss in a bowl with olive oil and a pinch of salt. Grill the zucchinis on both sides in batches to allow even cooking. Place the cooked zucchinis in a bowl and set aside while you lightly wilt the kale in the same fry pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Once the kale starts to char a little, take it off the heat and place it in the bowl with the zucchinis. Toss through the lemon zest, parsley and a pinch of salt if it needs it.
  3. To make the yoghurt dill sauce; place all the ingredients in a little dish and stir to combine.
  4. Serve the salad with the sauce drizzled over the top and the toasted hazelnuts and pepita seeds sprinkled over the salad.
