  • 1 shallot, finely sliced into rounds
  • 1 medium red chilli, finely sliced

  • Slice the courgettes into long strips about 5mm thick. Put into a large bowl and toss together with 1tbsp of the rapeseed oil.

  • Heat a griddle pan until it’s smoking hot.

  • Grill the courgette slices for 1-2 mins on each side until they begin to char, but still have some ‘bite’.

  • Transfer the courgettes to a serving platter. Scatter over the shallot, red chilli, mint and capers, then drizzle with the dressing.

  • Serve the salad hot or at room temperature.
