This salad is a favourite of my good mate Pete Begg. He was inspired to make it when he lived in Italy, where each stall at the local market would offer its own seasonal salad mix. Come spring and summer, a beautiful veggie salad can be made with baby asparagus, broad beans or small, sweet courgettes (which you can treat just like cucumbers: slice them thinly or cut them into long strips with a speed peeler). All these vibrant flavours need a powerful dressing to bring them together, so Pete decided to flavour his with chilli and mint as they are very good friends – brilliant!

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
