Butternut, Rocket and Feta Salad with Balsamic Glaze
As it goes, I decided to make this beautiful warm salad of Butternut, delicious.
This Butternut salad though is the easiest side dish to prepare and can be served cold too, if you are not keen on wilted rocket. That just means that the rocket leaves become a little droopy and wet. Anyhow, either way is unequivocally pleasant.
It really is as simple as that. It is such a lovely autumn veggie dish and you can enjoy it as it is as a filling lunch. The peppery rocket goes so well with the sweet pumpkin and the creaminess of the feta cheese, combined with the tangy sticky sweetness of balsamic vinegar. Hope you enjoy!
Butternut, Rocket and Feta Salad with Balsamic Glaze
A delicious veggie salad with roasted butternut, feta, rocket and a balsamic vinegar glaze.
1 butternut cut into slices
20 ml olive oil
salt and black pepper to season
2 teaspoons honey
50 gr rocket leaves
1 cup balsamic vinegar
2 wheels feta
handful mixed seeds
Simply arrange the butternut in an oven pan and drizzle with olive oil.
Season with salt and pepper and roast in the oven until soft.
Drizzle with honey and roast for another 5 minutes, ensuring a good roast coloring throughout the pieces of butternut.
In the meantime add the balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan on high heat until it starts to boil, remove from heat and gently stir to ensure it reduces to a sweet glaze, sticky sauce
Arrange rocket leaves on a platter, add the roasted butternut, add crumbled feta cheese and scatter with seeds.
Pour balsamic glaze over the salad and serve with any choice of meat dish.
