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

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.

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' and not 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.
