This bright green courgette, pea shoot and pomegranate salad is a pop of colour for your Sunday roast table or picnic basket. A selection of greens from petits pois and sugar snap peas to pea shoots and the juicy pomegranate seeds makes this a delightful treat, with the pomegranate bringing a touch of luxury to it. To make the impressive-looking courgette noodles, simply use a spiraliser to carve thin slices out of the courgette or a julienne peeler. This adds even more nutrition to your salad. Served with a dressing made of honey, rapeseed oil and sherry vinegar, itís a cheerful light salad that works well as a side. Itís quick to make so you can easily put it together and takes no time from other cooking. Try it with a roast dinner as a veggie extra for a lighter twist on the usual sides.

  2. Using a spiraliser or julienne peeler, prepare the courgette noodles and put into a serving bowl. Top with the peas, pea shoots and pomegranate seeds.
  3. To make the dressing, whisk the oil, vinegar and honey together, then season to taste. Drizzle over the salad to serve.
