It's fun, fresh and bursting with flavour!
Cut the butternut cubes into smaller pieces or, if you are using a whole butternut, peel, seed and cube it. Place the pieces into a roasting tin along with the red pepper, garlic cloves and corn cobs. Mix the olive oil with the spice rub or curry powder. Drizzle over the vegetables and toss to coat.

Roast the vegetables in a preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes until tender. Remove from the oven and cool. Cut the kernels from the sweetcorn cobs, trying to keep the rows intact.

Lay the salad leaves out onto a salad platter. Remove the garlic from the roasting tin. Top the salad leaves with the roasted vegetables. Scatter biltong over the top. Drizzle with the dressing just before serving.

Squeeze the flesh out of the roasted garlic cloves into a small bowl. Whisk in the remaining salad dressing ingredients
