Courgette Salad with Fresh Herbs

I don't really like raw zucchini and other squashes, but I have to admit, doing it this way changed my mind. I just used two small straight zucchini and two fairly straight yellow squash and cut them into long match sticks on a mandoline. I made a simple dressing of 3 parts olive oil, 1 part fresh lemon juice, salt and black pepper to taste and a handful of chopped flat leaf parsley and cilantro. I tossed it all with some julienned radishes and some finely diced jalapeno and tried to pile it all high onto the dinner plates.... My kids loved it.... I was surprised at how crunchy everything was.... A great way to get your kids to each raw squash...
