Harissa Roasted Butternut Squash, with Mango, Feta and Red Onion Salad

Mmmmm YUM!
A strange combination - but 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). Anyone in the UK you can buy this in Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose.
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 though.
If a knife will insert easily, then it's done.......
Actually, though, I just got a cube out and ate it! That's the way to tell if somethings cooked - unless of course, it happens to be chicken, then......eek! Nooooo don't do it!

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......Very Yummy indeedy!

PS: Anyone in the UK - The mangoes were £1.59 in Sainsbury's and 'Buy one get one free' lol

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