Ingredients:

Method:

  2. Make the dressing by mixing together the remaining oregano leaves, crushed garlic clove, lemon juice and olive oil. Season and set aside. Heat a griddle pan, oil and season the courgette slices, and griddle in batches until they are soft and tender. Set aside.
  3. Remove the chicken from the marinade, season and griddle in batches, until the chicken is cooked through. Place in a serving bowl with the courgettes, green beans and cannellini beans, and drizzle with the dressing. Serve with crusty seeded bread. This salad will keep in the fridge for 4 hours without going soggy.
