Recipe – Courgette, Feta and Mint Salad

With barbecue season in full swing, it is easy to focus on the meat and marinade and just grab a bag of salad from the bottom of the fridge to add a bit of greenery to your plates. However, it is a real shame to overlook the side dishes and luckily it is really simple to make this fantastic and fresh warm salad to accompany your barbecue.

Courgettes and feta are a classic combination, and the addition of mint and lemon make it a summery treat.

Ingredients

3 courgettes, sliced

A good glug of olive oil

A handful of feta, cubed

A bunch of fresh mint leaves, finely chopped

A few squeezes of lemon juice

Salt and pepper

How to make it

  • Heat some oil in a large pan and gently griddle the courgettes until golden brown
  • While the courgettes are cooking, mix together 3 parts olive oil to 1 part fresh lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste
  • Remove the courgettes from the heat, add the feta and mint leaves and drizzle over the dressing
  • Finish with a squeeze of lemon and serve

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
