When we appeared on QVC (briefly) this was the salad we made live on air. Oh my goodness it is delicious & thankfully jolly easy to prepare & throw together because once the lights & TV cameras come on your brain turns to ‘mush’. The best you can do is go into ‘autopilot’ and keep taking flat-out while smiling & trying not to faint!
50g Omega Sprinkles Munchy Seeds
1/2 bag of spinach
1 bag of watercress
1/2 a butternut squash (peeled & chopped into small cubes)
1/2 small jar of roasted peppers in olive oil
1 Tblsp olive oil
1 tsp fresh or dried thyme
1 packet of feta (crumbled)
salt & pepper to taste
Peel and chop up the butternut squash. Place the squash on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil, thyme, salt & pepper. Heat oven to 190C. Roast for 35 mins or until golden and tender.
Toss the watercress & spinach together in a salad bowl. Scatter the cooled butternut squash, crumbed feta and half jar of roasted peppers on top. Drizzle with your favourite salad dressing (i use Pizza Express ‘House’ dressing) and then sprinkle a good handful of savoury Munchy Seeds on top (the seeds will stick to your dressing and not all disappear to the bottom of your salad bowl)!
