Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad
“This salad is flavorful, healthy, and filling. The cubes of butternut squash are roasted with a touch of maple syrup, the quinoa provides a pleasant nuttiness and protein boost, and cranberries give the salad a pleasant sweetness and tang. Pepitas (a.k.a. pumpkin seeds) add crunch and savoriness, while thyme gives the Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad a warmth and distinct fall-ness that is right on time for the change in seasons.
To keep the Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad from being too sweet, I tossed it in a quick Dijon maple vinaigrette. The dressing plays harmoniously with the maple notes in the squash and gives the salad a lightness and brightness that will keep you wandering back to the fridge.”
Just look at this beautiful salad! What a lovely way to treat your body to a delicious and nutritious meal.
I love the flavors in this salad. They meld together wonderfully and really taste like fall in a bowl. It’s lightly sweet with the perfect touch of acidity from the vinaigrette dressing, and the herby-y thyme adds a wonderful savory note. Combine those with the healthy veggies and quinoa and you have a real winner!
