With all those choccies floating around this month we thought we’d keep it light, fresh and healthy in the #JustDelicious kitchen of love – like this zesty salad!


1 packet Eskort Streaky Bacon

1kg pumpkin, peeled and cut into cubes

30ml (2T) olive oil

salt and ground black pepper

50g fresh rocket

60g (4T) sundried tomatoes in oil, drained and chopped

60ml (4T) double thick plain yoghurt

5ml (1t) lemon juice

zest of ½ a lemon


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the pumpkin with the olive oil, salt and pepper.
  • Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes.
  • Fry the bacon until crispy, remove from the heat, cool and break into pieces.
  • Remove the pumpkin from the oven and cool.
  • In a large salad bowl, combine the pumpkin, bacon, feta, rocket and sundried tomatoes. Toss well.
  • Mix the yoghurt with the lemon juice and zest and serve with the salad as a dressing.
