  1. Preheat the oven to 190˚C/Fan 170˚C/Gas 5
  2. Peel and dice the squash into 3cm chunks.
  3. Wash the herbs, pat dry on kitchen paper and roughly chop.
  4. Toss the squash in a tablespoon of oil, throw in an oven tray and roast until golden and softened to the centre. Don’t worry if the edges catch a little bit of burn, it adds wonderful smokiness.
  5. Allow to cool slightly and add the cooked lentils. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and gently mix in all the chopped herbs.
  6. Combine all the dressing ingredients; lemon, Dijon mustard, honey, rapeseed oil in a jam jar, place the lid on and shake until a thickened dressing is formed, then set aside.
  7. Mix together the goat's yogurt with the chilli and mint, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. When you’re ready to serve, take your bowl with the squash and add the dressing and toss until everything is nicely coated. Pile high on a large serving plate and then drizzle the spiced yogurt over, finally shaving the hard goat's cheese all over the finished salad.
