Grated vegetable salad

Even though the weather hasn't been great, I still find that most evenings I just want a tasty salad for dinner. They are so quick and easy to make and involve little or no preparation.  I came up with this the other day for dinner. Courgettes are an excellent source of Manganese and Vitamin C, great for keeping those summer colds away.
