Zucchini and Pea Fritters with Chicken Salad

The perfect light dinner or lunch !  These Zucchini and Pea Fritters with Chicken Salad are very filling and so tasty. Ideal to use up your overload of Zucchini in a new way.

You could also have the Fritters as a side to a different main meal, make them smaller and stack them up. I use my George Foreman griller and therefore I make the Fritters in a more rectangular shape than round, but if you want to make them round, using whatever griller you have available, go right ahead.

It is quite a thick mixture and you will have to shape the Fritters once in the griller using a spoon to spread and slightly press down on them, whilst cooking. Keep in mind that the bigger you make these, the more it is prone to break when turning them. I just like the look of one big Fritter per serving, stacked with the Chicken Salad and by using the GF griller means no turning as well.

  1. I've never thought about serving fritters like that, they're usually a quick lazy meal here what a great idea.
