Roasted pumpkin, red onion and rocket; three of my favourite salad ingredients. I've combined them with some crumbly feta cheese and a delicious dressing for the perfect salad.

Bowl of the salad
Serve like this in the centre of the table and let everyone serve themselves

Once pumpkin is cooked take out of the baking dish and allow to cool.

In a large serving bowl add the washed rocket.
Thinly slice the red onion and place on top of the rocket.

In a small bowl mix the mayonnaise with the mustard and honey.

Dressing for the salad

Mix with a spoon until just combined. Taste the dressing. It will be good as is, but you can make it sweeter if you prefer by adding an extra teaspoon of honey.
Add the pumpkin once cooled and drizzle some dressing over the top or serve the dressing on the side.
You can toss the salad to mix.
