Roasted Butternut Squash Salad

 

Hands down my favorite thing about fall is throwing a big tray of vegetables into the oven and roasting the crap out of them. I like them a bit crispy, perfectly seasoned and then I use them on all sorts of things. Loaded salads primarily.

Roasted Butternut Squash Salad

This Roasted Butternut Squash Salad is going to be a once a week kinda thing in our house this fall. I am so into this salad it’s not even funny. I could eat 5 servings of this and never get sick of it. It’s that good.

And with the amount of wine and cheese I’m currently consuming in Chile, this salad is going to be on the menu for like 5 days straight. No joke. Also – Chile is probably the most magical country of all times and I want to move here. Expect a little South America/Chile love fest starting on the blog next week. It’s going to get really awesome around here. PLUS the recipes I’ve been learning while down here – just you wait!! Mind blowing.

  1. I agree. Just the best. Costco should begin to sell the cubed butternut squash. Off to meet your parents in Dallas today for our sojourn to Guatemala. Glad you’re enjoying Chile. We love South American countries more and more as we travel down there.

  3. How funny, I’m reading this post as I’m roasting up butternut squash and garlic for some hummus. Roasted squash + goat cheese + prosciutto… you are speaking straight to my heart! Just stumbled upon your blog today, and I love it! Super cute :) I’m just getting started in the blog world, and I am over at http://www.tastylittlecrouton.com if you have a second to stop by!

  5. This salad looks divine! I might substitute with some crispy bacon, but my husbando would totally be into the prosciutto. Either way, great salad!
