‘Marinaki’, salad with marinated young zucchinis and borage

‘Marinaki’ dish

Every morning we pick the young zucchinis from our garden; needless to mention they are organically grown…. We marinate them with organic extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, lime juice and fresh herbs; spearmint, basilica, mint and lemon verbena. We serve them in a unique dish with ‘xygalo’ (sour cheese from Sitia region of east Crete), borage pesto, garnished with the delicate and very tasty borage flowers.

This is a special salad that combines a fine taste with the beneficial properties of borage, known since ancient times as the “wort of joy” for it’s antidepressant qualities.
