Didn't have any Poppy seeds so used black onion seeds instead.

Quick and easy to make and so impressive - last minute decision to make for recent BBQ. Very tasty - never had raw courgette before - perfect with BBQ meats and fish

My guests liked it, thankfully, but I wasn't impressed. It went watery very quickly, which gave it a terribly soggy texture, and the honey flavour wasn't very pleasant.

A great way of using up all my courgettes this year that went a little mad in the garden! It went down a treat with everyone!

I have made this many times and people are always surprised at how good it is. My husband is not a fan of courgettes but loves this.
Try it.

Sorry, but my family didn't like this at all. You were right to point out that it goes watery - it did within minutes of making and consequently looked most unappetising. We also found the honey was overpowering and made it sickly-sweet.

Lovely. My daughter does not like courgettes at all but liked the salad. My husband finished it, so I will not have any leftovers for my lunch tomorrow. I will definitely make it again.

Very enjoyable and easy and quick to make. Will certainly make it more often.

Normally my husband would not choose courgettes but he is now a convert. I did not change anything.
