Squash, Chorizo and Feta Salad

Ingredients

1 butternut squash
1 red onion
2 tbsp olive oil
150g chorizo, sliced thinly
150g Feta cheese, crumbled
150g assorted salad leaves
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp harissa paste
1 handful mint leaves, torn roughly


Method

Halve the squash lengthways and de-seed. Peeling is optional. Cut into 5mm thick slices. Peel and slice the onion into wedges. Place squash and onion on a baking sheet and toss in the olive oil. Bake in a moderate oven until tender. Remove from oven and scatter over the sliced chorizo. Grill under a hot grill for 5 mins until coloured.

In a bowl, toss the salad leaves in the harissa paste and lemon juice until evenly coated. Tip out onto a serving dish, top with the squash, onion and chorizo. Sprinkle over the feta and mint leaves and serve.

A pretty Autumn salad. I really like the use of harissa in a salad dressing with salty feta and cool mint I can see that would work well with earthy and slightly sweet butternut squash.
