  • 1 small onion
  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • 170g carton 0% fat Greek yogurt

For a milder oniony flavour, replace the onion with shreds of fresh leek or lengths of fresh chive.


  1. Trim courgette. Slice lengthways as thinly as possible, and then cut into long strips. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil and cook the courgette strips for about 30 secs until slightly tender but not completely cooked. Drain well and cool under cold running water. Set aside.
  2. Wash the cucumber. Slice lengthways as thinly as possible, then cut into long strips. Peel the onion and slice into thin rings. Put in a serving bowl and set aside.
  3. For the dressing, wash the tomatoes, chop up roughly and place in a blender or food processor. Add the yogurt, ketchup and plenty of seasoning. Blend for a few seconds until smooth and well blended.
  4. To serve, drain the courgette and pat dry with kitchen paper. Carefully mix into the cucumber and onion. Pile the tomato dressing on top and scatter with the few basil leaves. Best served at room temperature.
