  1. Cut the courgettes lengthwise into thin slices. Drizzle with olive oil, season and cook in a griddle pan for about 1 minute on each side until slightly blackened and cooked through. It will take 2-3 minutes
  2. Meanwhile, heat another drizzle of olive oil in a frying pan and add the currants and pine nuts. Fry until the currants have puffed up and the pine nuts are a pale gold
  3. Put the lettuce, mint and courgette strips on a plate, scatter over the pine nuts, currants and chillies, and crumble the feta on top
  4. Season with some good grindings of pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice
