  • 500g butternut peeled and diced into plus minus 2cm cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 For the vinaigrette:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tbsp minced shallots
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • salt and fresh black pepper

 For the salad:

  • 250g Rocket . Baby Spinach / Salad herb mix
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup crumbled Gorgonzola


Preheat the oven to 220°.

Toss butternut cubes in olive oil, honey, salt & pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 20 – 25 minutes (give them a turn half way). When nice and tender, remove and allow to cool.

Meanwhile start on the vinaigrette: Combine vinegar, shallots, honey, mustard. Whisk in oil, add some salt & pepper to taste.

Place rocket spinach salad mix on a large flat dish (or whatever you have), place the butternut on top. Roast pumpkin seeds lightly in a pan with some oil (optional), and sprinkle on top with the cranberries and crumbled Gorgonzola.

Finally drizzle the dressing on top and serve immediately.
