This is a great vegetarian salad that uses roasted squash. The creamy, salty feta balances out the sweet flavor of the pea shoots, and the toasted almonds offer some much-welcomed crunch!

Chef’s Tips:

  • Remember that the cooking time will depend on how big you cut the chunks of the squash. To test, just pierce a piece with a fork, and it should be completely softened once cooked.
  • A good-quality olive oil makes the world of difference!
