You may have to do this a couple of times so you don’t over crowd the pan.
Remove and place onto a plate to cool.
Bring a small pan of water to the boil and add the shelled peas bring back to the boil and then drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process.
To make the dressing:
Place the Dijon mustard, zest and juice of the lemon and white wine vinegar into a bowl and lightly whisk.
Continue to whisk and gradually drizzle in the olive oil.
Place the courgettes, peas, feta and mint into a bowl and then drizzle with the dressing.
Tip-: garnish with pea shoots to give you that extra pea hit.
