Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash (about 1kg)
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp dried mixed herbs, such as Herbes de Provence
  • 2 x 70g bags rocket
  • 100g pitted olives (we used Kalamata but green work just as well), drained and halved
  • 2 avocados
For the dressing
  • 1 tbsp tamari (gluten-free soy sauce)
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Step by step

Get ahead
Roast the squash up to 1 day ahead, cover and chill; bring back to room temperature before serving.
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Peel the butternut squash, deseed, then cut it into small bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place the pieces into a roasting tin and drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with the paprika and dried herbs; season and mix everything well.
  3. Bake the squash for about 40 minutes. Once it's nice and soft, remove it from the oven and leave it to one side to cool.
    Tip
    If you want to assemble this an hour or two ahead, toss the avocado in a little lemon or lime juice to prevent it from browning.
  4. For the dressing, mix all the ingredients together with a little salt and pepper
  5. Put the rocket and olives in a large bowl. Halve and stone the avocados, cut into small cubes and add to the salad with the cooled squash. To serve, pour over the dressing and toss; transfer to a platter.
