    Serves: 4-6

    Ingredients

    3 salad onions, trimmed
    2 limes, juice
    ½ small bunch coriander
    ½ small bunch mint
    ½ garlic clove
    1 tsp honey
    5 tbsp olive oil
    3 courgettes, cut lengthways into 0.5cm thick slices
    3 baby gems, pulled open
    large handful (about 150g) radishes, quartered
    1 avocado, cut into large chunks

    Method

    1. Prepare a barbecue or heat a griddle over a high heat. Lay the salad onions on the hot barbecue or griddle; cook for 5-8 minutes until charred all over. Add to a small food processor with the lime juice, herbs, garlic and honey. Whizz until finely chopped, then add 4 tbsp oil in a steady stream. Season, tip into a bowl and set aside.

    2. Rub the courgette strips lightly in the remaining 1 tbsp oil, then grill for a couple of minutes on each side, in batches if necessary, until lightly charred and tender. Season and rest on a plate.

    3. Put the lettuce, radishes and avocado in a salad bowl and add the courgette. Pour over the dressing, toss gently and serve
