im thinking feta, pumpkin, kumara, red onion, red capsicum, but not sure what else - especially stuck on the dressing. Have googled, but prefer tried and true... many thanks

Try oneof those chunky dips from the supermarket as the dressing. Try the pesto one with the pinenuts it is lovely stirred through roast veges especially with the feta cheese crumbled over the veges. You are on to a winner!

What a great idea! ! I'm going to steal your idea for my next dinner party. I think the capsicum and cashew one would be pretty hot too.
