Method

For this recipe a griddle pan is suggested but a frying pan will work just as well.

Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes with a lid on until just cooked. Drain and leave until cool enough to handle. Keep the water and cook the green beans for 5 minutes and drain.

Place a griddle pan over a medium heat. Toast the pine nuts on the griddle pan while slicing the courgette into ½ cm pieces or if you have a mandolin slice into long strips and pop into a big bowl.

Add the sliced potatoes in the bowl with the courgettes. Add 1tbsp of the olive oil and toss everything together with a little salt and milled pepper. Place the potatoes onto the griddle pan and cook until nicely charred, do the same with the courgettes and keep warm. This may be in 3 batches depending on the size of your pan.

In a large serving bowl add the rocket, baby gem, green beans, mint and pine nuts.

Mix the lemon zest, juice and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the potatoes and courgettes and mix well. Then toss the potatoes with the salad and serve with the feta cheese crumbled over.

"This is one of my favourite summer salads. It’s a great addition to any lunch, especially a picnic. The potatoes taste amazing tossed with asparagus in the creamy lemon and avocado mix, and then sprinkled with chives and spring onions. It’s simple but delicious! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of it."
