Recipe: Roast vegetable salad with rocket, feta and pine nuts

Summer’s here – well sort of – today’s decidedly autumnal actually. Anyway, what can you do, it’s June, so for me that means it’s time to barbecue/braai as much as possible.

I love summer and all the fresh flavours it brings and the inspiration it gives me to come up with new dishes. Barbecuing is a pleasure as it involves several elements to pull together a great meal.
