Ingredients

  • 3 large courgettes, sliced into long strips (or use a vegetable peeler)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds
  • 150g streaky bacon, chopped
  • 1 large fennel bulb, finely sliced
  • 200g soft goat’s cheese, crumbled
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Method

  1. Toss the courgettes in a bowl with the olive oil and fennel seeds and leave for 10 minutes. Heat a griddle pan and cook the courgettes for a few minutes each side until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a frying pan, dry-fry the bacon until crispy, then drain on kitchen paper. Place the fennel in a large bowl and mix with the warm courgettes, bacon and goat’s cheese.
  3. Mix the lemon juice with the extra-virgin olive oil, season and drizzle over the salad. Serve the salad with crusty fresh bread.
