This colourful salad looks amazing and is hearty and filling as a main meal. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our Indian spiced turkey dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Scatter the squash over a shallow roasting tray and drizzle with the oil, chilli flakes and seasoning. Roast in the oven for 15 mins. Add the bacon pieces, shredded turkey and tomatoes to the tin and continue to roast for 15 mins or until the squash is tender and the turkey warmed through.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the dressing ingredients together, seasoning to taste, set to one side. Boil a pan of water and cook the green beans for 4 mins or until tender, drain.
  3. Dress the beans and salad leaves with half the dressing and arrange over a serving platter. Top with the squash, turkey, tomatoes and bacon. Drizzle with the remaining dressing and serve straight away.
