This is one of my favourite salads. Roasting peppers in the oven gives them a deliciously sweet flavour. You could marinate 2 uncooked chicken breasts for about 10 minutes in some olive oil, rice wine vinegar and pesto, then griddle the chicken and serve this as a warm salad.

1 red pepper, sliced in half and deseeded

1 yellow pepper, sliced in half and deseeded

2 tsp Dijon mustard

4 tbsp olive oil

3 tbsp rice wine vinegar

1 tbsp green pesto

2 cooked chicken breasts, thinly sliced

2 tbsp parsley, chopped

2 spring onions, finely sliced

½ garlic clove, crushed

150 g (5 oz) fusilli, cooked and refreshed in cold water

50 g (2 oz) pea shoots or watercress

salt and freshly ground black pepper

✸ Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6.

✸ Place the red and yellow peppers, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Roast in the oven for 20–25 minutes until soft and the skins are dark brown. Remove from the oven, place in a bowl, cover with cling film and leave to cool. Once cool enough to handle, remove the skins and slice the flesh into thin strips.

✸ Mix together the Dijon mustard, oil, rice wine vinegar and pesto in a large bowl. Add the chicken, parsley, spring onions, garlic and cooked pasta and toss together with the peppers. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 1 hour.

✸ Scatter a few of the pea shoots or some of the watercress on the base of a serving plate. Roughly chop the remaining leaves and fold into the salad with some salt and pepper. Spoon the salad onto the serving plate.
