BUTTERNUT, FETA AND LENTIL SALAD

After weeks and weeks of rain, we finally have some sunshine and with that comes al fresco dining.  Friday nights are always a bit of a rush for us so this salad is perfect – the butternut can be prepared in advance and then just quickly throw everything together at the last minute.  Perfect with cold roast chicken and a honey and mustard dressing.
