A delicious simple Summer salad

With courgettes and tomatoes in season now this is a great recipe, really simple to make and a fantastic side dish to accompany any barbecue.

 

Ingredients

 

2-3 courgettes

Extra virgin olive oil

A handful of cherry tomatoes, halved

50g Feta cheese crumbled

A handful of watercress

Fresh mint to garnish

Lemon juice

Salt & pepper

Serves 2

 

  1. Slice the courgettes lengthways into 0.5cm strips
  2. Season with salt and pepper before brushing with oil on both sides
  3. Grill on a hot griddle pan or on the barbecue until lightly charred on each side
  4. Scatter the strips on a large plate then add the crumbled feta, tomatoes, watercress and a little more seasoning if you feel it needs it.
  5. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and a squeeze of lemon and garnish with torn mint leaves
Tip: If you don’t have any watercress use rocket instead – it is equally delicious
