  • Roughly 40g feta cheese (2 servings)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method

Divide the salad leaves between 2 plates

Use a vegetable peeler to strip the courgette into ribbons and place on top of the leaves

Cook the peas according to the instructions or however you’d usually cook them if you have your own fresh peas

Slice the tomatoes in half and the peach into thinner slices

Once cooked, add the peas and all other ingredients to the plates other than the feta

Glug on your olive oil, squeeze on the lemon juice, sprinkle over salt and crack on with the pepper
