Enjoyed this dish but it is a little bland. I added chopped red chilli and seasoned it with lots of salt & pepper which improved it no end.

Nice, but nothing exciting. It LOOKS delicious but is then strangely bland.

Made with the squash cut in large pieces, baked and then cubed, the sweetcorn boiled first and then sliced off the kernels. Afterwards, I continued with the frying (for only about 5 mins total) and mixing as stated in the recipe. The salad was good, warm or gently reheated, I'll be making again when I'll have corn and squash that need using up, but it was not the kind of recipe you can't get enough of and have to make again and again.
