Courgette & Green Bean Salad with Tracklements Robust Wholegrain Mustard & Tahini Dressing 

Courgette & Green Bean Salad with Tracklements Robust Wholegrain Mustard & Tahini Dressing 

Serves: 4 

Prep and cook time: 10 mins 

Ingredients: 

For the dressing: 

½ garlic clove, crushed 

2 tbsp light tahini 

Zest & juice ½ lemon 

Juice 1 orange 

½ tsp clear honey 

1 tbsp Tracklements Robust Wholegrain Mustard 

2 tbsp olive oil 

Salt and freshly milled black pepper 

For the salad: 

2 tbsp olive oil 

3 medium courgettes (about 400g), sliced into 3mm rounds 

Juice of ½ lemon 

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped 

125g French beans, trimmed 

4 good handfuls of salad leaves 

12-18 oven-dried tomatoes or semi-dried tomatoes (optional) 

A handful of mint, finely shredded (optional) 

Method: 

  • In a bowl mix together the crushed garlic, tahini, lemon zest and juice, orange juice, honey, and mustard 
  • If the dressing thickens too much, thin it down by whisking in a little water, one tablespoon at a time, until you get a creamy, pourable consistency 
  • Finally, gently stir in the olive oil. Taste and add a little salt and pepper if needed. Set aside 
  • Heat the oil in a frying pan over a fairly high heat and cook the courgettes in batches for a few minutes, turning them so that they brown on both sides. Transfer to a large bowl once cooked 
  • When the courgettes are all cooked, season with salt and pepper, add the lemon juice and chilli and toss together well 
  • Boil a pan of salted water and blanch the green beans in it for two minutes. Drain, then dunk in cold water to refresh. Drain again, pat dry with a clean tea towel and add to the courgettes. Toss to mix 
  • Add the salad leaves (along with the tomatoes and mint, if using) to the bowl and toss to mix 
  • Trickle the tahini dressing generously over the whole lot and serve with good, crunchy bread
