The sweetness of the roasted squash, the saltiness of the feta cheese and the punchiness of wild rocket create the perfect combination. 
Pumpkin seeds help with a bit of crunchiness, and capers remind me a bit of the summer just gone.
It’s a great salad to eat on its own, and it perfect as a meal prep idea too! Just remember to add the dressing at the last minute.
I also love adding smoked paprika. It has a warming but palatable heat with a complex depth and it goes amazingly well with the saltiness of the crumbled feta.
