Harissa Roasted Butternut Squash

Okay, butternut and mango with feta salad may well sound like a strange combination, but I can tell you it works!

I peeled and cubed one butternut squash then put it in a roasting tin and mixed in some oil and Rose Harissa paste (a good dollop).

Harissa roasted butternut and mango salad

Anyone in the UK you can buy this in Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose but I'm sure it's available in any good supermarket.

I then gave it a good mix to coat the squash, then roasted it in the oven at 200C/400F for about 30 minutes, basting with the Harissa oil every now and then, until it was nicely cooked through. If a knife will insert easily, then it's done.

Anyway, I then left it to cool while I peeled and sliced one mango. I then sliced some red onion and cubed some feta. I piled the lot on top of some rocket and other salad leaves and drizzled with a little olive oil.

For anyone vegetarian, of course, you would need to use 'salad cheese' rather than feta.

  6. Jan, that salad looks a treat. I love fruit in salads especially mango's and pineapple they marry really well with the greens.
