Fall Harvest Chopped Salad with Apple Maple Vinaigrette

Fall Harvest Chopped Salad with Apple Maple Vinaigrette

If you know me, or don’t know me, you’ll know that it’s weird AF that I have yet another salad recipe on my blog. I hate salads. Why have a salad when you can just eat the meat on top? But since the fiancé is healthier than me and consistently asks for salads, I make salads. Bastard. So I’m constantly looking for ways to cover up the greens in a salad and make it feel like an exciting meal instead of like I’m eating leaves. Leaves are stupid. This salad doesn’t taste like a salad. It tastes like a bowl of great sh*t that should be eaten this way all the time. That’s just a fact.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and diced in small cubs
  • 2 tablespoons Tin Star Ghee
