Frankly one of the most delicious salads I've ever had.

This is absolutely fab!! Tastes amazing and really filling too! As the other comments say, makes 3 big portions or 4 good portions. Delicious warm or cold.

So delicious! I tend to make this on a Sunday afternoon, leave it in the fridge and fill a lunch box full of it each morning to take to work - usually makes around four good size portions. Makes a very satisfying an filling lunch. Absolutely love it.

I made this last night for dinner, it's really flavoursome and summery but it would easily serve four. We had two HUGE portions last night and both myself and my boyfriend took it to work for lunch today. Or perhaps my butternut was larger than normal. Anyway I can highly recommend it, it was just as delicious today for lunch. Last night I didn't bother waiting for the bulghar and squash to cool, and we ate it warm.
