Method

  • 01
  • Bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil, cook potato for 2 minutes, then add beans, asparagus, zucchini and peas and continue cooking for another 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of iced water to refresh, then drain and place in a bowl. Reserve 1 tbsp blanching liquid.
  • 02
  • Heat olive oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat, add shallot and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes or until softened, add vegetables and cook for another 2 minutes or until heated through, season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, add reserved blanching liquid and stir to combine. Add mint and lemon juice and stir to combine. Spoon into a bowl, scatter with ricotta salata and serve.

“During a birthday lunch at North Bondi Italian Food we ordered numerous side dishes including chef Robert Marchetti’s warm salad of zucchini, asparagus and peas. I would love to have this recipe so I can make it at home.”
