Super Salad

Super Salad indeed!!! I admit getting the very green wart-looking hubbard squash into cubes wasn’t completely difficult, made a whopper of a mess in the process, but with success of culinary level I got it cubed and actually cooked.  The salad turned out perfectly supreme, and scrumptiously delicious!!! Gold stars for me  🙂

Here is the recipe for this very morish, gloriously colourful salad that will without a doubt leave you with a smug smile on your face:

Salad:                                                                                                   
½ hubbard squash cut into pieces                                           
2 tbsp olive oil                                                                  
1 red pepper
150g baby spinach                            
1 avocado                                                              
60ml toasted pine nuts                        
100g feta
 
Dressing:
60ml olive oil
60ml red wine vinegar
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp wholegrain mustard
 
Preheat oven to 200 C. Toss the squash with the oil in a baking dish and bake for 20 min until tender. Gently toss the pepper through. Combine with other ingredients. Top with feta.
 
For the dressing whisk all the ingredients together in a small jug. Season to taste.

Whala.. It’s so Jaime-Oliver-ish… These are the benefits of being in a book club with people that do actually know how to cook. Enjoy!!
