Griddled Courgette Salad with Chilli & Mint Salsa

August 07

The mint salsa is best made just before you are ready to serve as the leaves have a tendency to turn black. Use frozen peas if you can’t find fresh, and swap faro with grains like couscous or bulghur wheat depending on what you have in the storecupboard.

Method
  1. In a bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Using a vegetable peeler, thinly slice the courgettes into thin strips and add to the bowl and toss through.
  2. Heat a large griddle pan over a high heat and griddle the courgette strips in batches until charred on both sides. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Whisk the ingredients for the chilli mint salsa together in a bowl. Squeeze in any remaining juice from the lemons.
  4. Combine the faro, feta, fresh peas and lemon zest and half the chilli mint salsa.
  5. Transfer to a platter and arrange the griddled courgette on top. Scatter with mint leaves and drizzle over the chilli mint salsa.
