  • 1 zucchini, shaved lengthways with a vegetable peeler to create thin strips
  • ½ cup fresh or defrosted frozen peas
  • 10 mint leaves, torn
  • 20g walnuts. Toasted and roughly chopped
  • Handful mixed salad leaves
  • 1 tbsp low fat Greek style yoghurt
  • 1 tsp goat’s cheese
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
Combine zucchini, peas and salad leaves in a salad bowl and drizzle over the dressing. Scatter mint leaves and walnuts to serve.
Handy Tip: To make this into a main meal, simply add a 400g tin of cannelleni beans, chickpeas or mixed beans and you have a quick, delicious and healthy summer supper.
