Hope all of you had a good Thanksgiving meal yesterday. We had our Thanksgiving party at our friend’s house and we had some amazing food and great time chatting. I felt like I was in a food coma yesterday after eating all that food.
So today I have a healthy and light salad recipe to get back in track before the holiday and more noshing starts. This salad is very filling, colorful and tastes great. Using brown rice makes it fiber rich and fills you up very easily.
Roasting butternut squash makes it so sweet and delicious. Even though this recipe uses only 2 cups of butternut squash, I roasted the whole squash — used some in the recipe, stored some more in the freezer after cooling and then snacked on the rest — they taste amazing roasted with salt & pepper. Since this salad can be served warm or at room temperature, it can be part of a holiday dinner or buffet menus.
