Roast Butternut Squash & Feta Salad

Roast Butternut Squash & Feta Salad is my favourite veggie salad. The combination of sweet roast butternut squash and salty feta is incredible. If you have a bag of salad and some leftover roast butternut squash from another meal you can have a delicious meal in minutes. Roast sweet potato also works well in the place of butternut squash.

I have to give credit to my friend Yomi for this recipe. She had it for her packed lunch at work (I know, great packed lunch) and after I tried some I thought it was too good not to share. She also takes credit for the Banana Flapjacks recipe (I know, great friend).

This sounds fab. Love Feta cheese salad in the summer and the butternut squash makes it more of a meal to stop you snacking. x

I served this up as one of a range of salads at a barbecue this weekend and it was very well received - good job I tried it before I put it on the buffet table because by the time I got there to eat, it had all gone! I did adapt it a little bit. As a friend was attending who was allergic to cows' milk, I substituted a feta-style goat's cheese and it still worked very well. Thank you for the recipe. I shall defiintely make it again!
