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.
