Method

1. Preparing the Spaghetti Squash:

  • Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C.

  • Prepare Squash for Baking: Cut the spaghetti squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out and discard the seeds.

  • Bake: Place the squash halves cut-side down on a baking sheet. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the flesh is easily pierced with a fork.

  • Create Spaghetti Strands: Once cool enough to handle, use a fork to scrape out the flesh of the squash. It will come out in strands that resemble spaghetti.

  • Dice the Avocado: Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and dice the flesh.

3. Assembling the Bowl:

  • Combine Ingredients: In a large bowl, gently mix the spaghetti squash strands with the sliced cucumber and diced avocado.

  • Add Olives and Cheese: Add the Kalamata olives and crumbled feta cheese to the bowl.

  • Seasoning: Drizzle with olive oil, lemon juice, zest and balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  • Garnish: Garnish with fresh basil leaves.

4. Serving:

  • Plate the Dish: Serve the mixture in a bowl or on a plate.

  • Final Touches: If desired, add an extra sprinkle of feta cheese or a few basil leaves on top for presentation.
