4 sprigs of coriander
50g mixed leaf lettuce
1 tomato
1 red capsicum

When the oven is hot, place tray on the middle rack and cook for 10 minutes then change setting to grill for a further 5 minutes until golden all over. Remove from oven and squeeze with juice of half the lemon.

Prepare salad
In a bowl, combine the salad leaves, de-seeded capsicum cut into thin strips (use a mandolin if you have one), grated carrot, roughly chopped tomato, the remaining coriander (roughly chopped), the remaining red onion thinly sliced (use amount to your taste). Set aside until just before serving.
