250g bacon lardons
400g butternut squash, peeled and cubed
4 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp. lime juice
4 green onions, sliced
1 tsp. chili flakes
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded & diced
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Prepare a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
Place the bacon on the foil and bake in the hot oven for 15-20 minutes until crispy. Once ready, cool slightly and roughly chop.
Increase the oven temperature to 430°F (220°C) and line the baking sheet with baking paper.
Place the butternut squash on the baking sheet with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and season with salt. Bake for 15 minutes, then toss and cook for a further 10 minutes, until tender and starting to brown.
In the meantime, make the salad dressing by placing half the chopped bacon in a medium bowl with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lime juice, green onion, chili flakes and jalapeños. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.
Remove the butternut squash from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. Then transfer to a serving bowl, drizzle with the bacon lime dressing, and top with the remaining bacon. Serve immediately.
