This is my version of a classic French dish and, apart from it being delicious, what I love about it is that you can make it in literally a few minutes from start to finish. And I can guarantee you that practically everyone who turns their nose up at having some lettuce in with their peas ends up being converted.

Chargrilled courgette with basil, mint, chilli and lemon
Toss courgette strips in a bowl with olive oil (enough to coat), chilli, sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat a ridged grill pan until smoking and griddle the courgettes in batches, about four minutes a side. Do not to crowd the pan! They should be tender, with a crunch to them in the middle. Drain on kitchen paper. Toss the griddled courgettes in the lemon juice, mint, basil and a good slug of your best extra virgin olive oil. Serve at room temp for a summer salad.
