Fresh Courgette Salad with Anchovy Dressing

We harvested the first courgette from our vegetable garden today. In order to enjoy their taste best, I made a salad of them with anchovies and garlic dressing.

Whenever I pick courgettes, I always wonder how big they should be when I harvest them. I imagine that it’s better to pick them when they are smaller and younger if you want to eat raw in a salad.
