  • Cucumber

Any other root vegetables would work if you don’t have butternut squash in the fridge; carrots or sweet potatoes, for example.

Likewise, you can use any leftover salad you might have, and it doesn’t need to be these specific ingredients.

Preheat the oven to 200c

Place the butternut squash in a roasting tin with some oil and mixed herbs.

My wife prefers coconut oil, but olive oil would be ok too.

Roast for about 20 minutes until they’re slightly caramelized. Once cooked, leave to cool and get on with assembling your salad.

In a lovely salad bowl, put your leaves, cucumber, and tomatoes. Once the roasted butternut squash is cooled, add that to your salad bowl.

Sprinkle over some mixed seeds and balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy
