1.  Heat up a griddle pan and grill the courgettes for 3-4 minutes on a medium/high heat turning them over a few times. Transfer the courgettes into a strainer and leave for about 20 minutes until the excess water has drained (this may not be necessary if you haven’t grilled the courgettes for too long). Cube and set aside.

2.  Grill the pineapple slices in a griddle pan for 2 minutes on each side, set aside for several minutes and drain off excess water (if necessary). Cube the pineapple (optional).

3.  Fry the garlic for a couple of minutes using 1 tablespoon of oil, not allowing it to brown. Transfer into a bowl, add the oil and balsamic vinegar. Combine the courgettes and pineapple, pour in the garlic mixture, add the basil, season and serve!
