Halloumi & butternut squash couscous salad marries roast squash, salty halloumi and cool mint yogurt sauce into a delicious, satisfying and portable salad.
The roast butternut squash is sweet and satisfying on lemon couscous. The fresh herbs make this salad light and aromatic. Scale up / down depending on your needs. In the summer, we make a BBQ Veggie version. Both of these couscous salads are staples in our picnic and pack lunch rotation.
Food and laughter are the best medicine! My friend had been poorly so we packed up this salad and a few more as a picnic, took up a spot in the hospital canteen and had ourselves some proper vegetarian, healthy food. She was so hungry, she asked for seconds and then thirds! The pink tablecloth was my Mum’s idea as a way to brighten the spirit of the hospital. We had such a good chat, laugh and food. It was the best day.
Serve A Buffet
Many of our recipes are meant to be served buffet style. I love a well-presented plate but I also love the feel good vibe when everyone is digging in and piling up heaps of food on their plate and dishes are passed around a table. It makes me grateful that I live in a land of abundance and joy as opposed to scarcity and rationing.
