Method

  1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the courgette and red pepper on a baking tray and drizzle with 1 tbsp oil. Grill for 10-15 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to char.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the potatoes in lightly salted boiling water for 5-6 minutes, or until tender.
  3. Mix together the eggs, milk, cheese and mixed herbs. Season generously with salt and pepper and set aside.
  4. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a frying pan and fry the potatoes for 2-3 minutes. Stir in the courgette and red pepper, then pour in the beaten egg mixture, making sure the other ingredients are covered. Stir the egg mixture to break it up a little as it begins to cook. Cook for 3-4 minutes over a medium heat, or until the edge of the frittata begins to set.
  5. Place the frittata pan under the grill and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the egg is cooked and the top is golden.
  6. To make a vinaigrette for the salad, mix together the vinegar and 3 tbsp oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  7. Toss the lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes with the dressing and serve immediately with the frittata.
