The Internet is a great thing for food inspiration and I am constantly seeing things on blogs and food websites that I want to recreate. A Pinterest image inspired this latest offering - I knew when I saw some of these ingredients put together it would be a great combination of flavours and textures. It's pretty simple and makes a healthy and hearty salad that will fill you up!
I cut up a butternut squash into bite size chunks, drizzled in olive oil and roasted in the oven until lightly caramelised around the edges (180 degrees C, around 40 minutes). I cooked some green lentils until soft but still a little firm. Once cooked and left to cool from hot to warm, I put some of the lentils and squash on a bed of rocket salad (from a bag!) then I crumbled some feta cheese on top. I drizzled all this with a dressing composed of 1 part olive oil, 1 part pomegranate paste/molasses.
This was delicious and I will definitely be scouring Pinterest for more inspiring salad images!
