  1. In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, slice the courgettes into long thin ribbons and place into a bowl, season generously and toss with 2 tbsp of the dressing. Set aside and leave to marinate while you prepare the rest of the salad.
  3. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan over a medium heat for 3 minutes, until lightly browned.
  4. Bring a pan of water to the boil and once boiling, blanch the Tenderstem® and peas for 2 - 3 minutes. Quickly drain under cold running water.
  5. Toss the Tenderstem® and peas together in the bowl with the courgette. Divide between plates, scatter the toasted seeds and drizzle over an extra spoonful of the dressing to serve.
