Serves 4


  • 1 cup fresh mint
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
  • 1 Tbsp capers
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 4 rashers bacon
  • 2 cups peas, cooked
  • 100g cooked beans or snap peas
  • 1 ball mozzarella or 6 boccocini, torn into pieces
  • ¼ cup mint leaves for garnish
  • Zest and juice of half a lemon
  • 1/3 cup olive oil


To make the pesto: place the mint, garlic, capers, lemon zest and juice, cheese, olive oil and salt and pepper into a blender. Whizz until well combined. Set aside.

Grill or fry the bacon until it is crispy. Cut into 2 cm lengths.

In a large bowl combine the peas, beans, mozzarella and bacon.

Drizzle over the pesto and mix through. Serve the salad on a platter and sprinkle over the mint leaves.

TIP: If you would like your pesto to last in the fridge for a couple of weeks, blanch the mint leaves before you blitz it and it will retain the vibrant green colour.
