Salad of grilled butternut squash, rocket, feta, pommegranate and black olive

Oh is that a feather boa?


It was a 20's theme for one of the hen parties we cooked for on Saturday just outside Chipping Norton . I had cooked for the organiser's friend at another hen party the Saturday after new year - amazing how word of mouth spreads :)


7 hour slow cooked shoulder of lamb (see more here) was on the menu - one of the most popular dishes. This salad goes relly well with it - and it all dissappeared on Saturday - always a good sign. Butternut squash goes on the grill pan (see tip for grilling it by clicking photo below) and is then roasted to finsh cooking & diced into thick chunks.

You don't need a recipe surely - it's not (ahem) rocket science.....
