So I guess this is kind of a fall recipe, and here we are in spring.  Call me crazy though, I kind of love Butternut Squash all year round.   Especially roasted. 

This salad works really well as either a side dish or as a full meal in itself just by topping it with some sliced chicken breast.  Its just so full of amazing flavours and good-for-you ingredients.  If you haven’t gotten onto the Quinoa train yet, it’s time to get aboard with this fabulous Roasted Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad.

My favourite part of the salad is the nuttiness of the quoinoa paired with the sweet roasted butternut squash against the creamy rich flavour of the goat cheese.  Top it all off with some homemade Lime-Soy Dressing and you have a hit!  Enjoy!

  1. Butternut squash has been a favorite for years….so many ways to use it in recipes. I must try it with quinoa!

  2. Awesome healthier option! This looks fantastic, I love using Quinoa in dishes. I recently made a meatless taco casserole with Quinoa and everybody loved it. Awesome for nachos too!
