Coquina squash, quinoa & goat cheese salad

It’s pumpkin season and I’m in love. And by pumkin, I generally refer to all you wonderful squashes out there. All the different shapes and colours and textures- every year I get so excited and overwhelmed, I end up covering every corner in our house and sneaking squashes and pumpkins into most of our meals: from soups, snacks and mini cheese pies to main dishes and dessert, come October, chances are there will be squash or pumpkin in there.

Forget about the breathtaking views, super stylish rooms and impeccable service: the real bomb in Rocabella Hotel Mykonos is the food! I couldn’t be happier sharing the recipe for one of their signature dishes with you, as it’s exactly the way I like it: delicious (trust me, I’ve been making it on repeat), colourful, fresh and super easy to make. If, like me, you can’t make the trip to Mykonos this year, we can at least enjoy this beautiful salad over and over again!

PerfectWinterSalad-620-4

I usually prefer making salads is the summer. I can’t think of a better way to survive the heat but by eating light dishes, making full use of the abundance of the vibrant and colourful vegetables and fruits available. During the winter, I mostly gravitate towards using seasonal vegetables in piping hot soups, along with lots of fragrant spices and herbs. There are however certain salads which I love making once the weather gets cold.  [READ MORE]
