Spinach Salad with Roasted Squash, Roasted Grapes and Pumpkin Seeds

This week’s featured ingredient at  I Heart Cooking Clubs is Greens! Anything green and leafy counts so I decided on this Spinach Salad by Ellie Krieger. My husband is travelling again this week so that means make something he doesn’t like mainly butternut squash.

This is a great winter salad with butternut squash, grapes and pumpkin seeds. The flavor comes from roasting the butternut squash and roasting the grapes. The pumpkin seeds also get a toasting. The salad dressing is a mixture of olive oil, maple syrup, cider vinegar and Dijon mustard. A very tasty salad that I have been enjoying as a lunch or dinner meal. The recipe can be found on Ellie Krieger’s website.

    I have a few butternut squashes laying around. Nothing thought of pairing that with grapes. I like the flavor profile of this winter salad. Thanks for sharing the idea!


  2. I like the idea of the roasted grapes with the butternut squash. And the dressing sounds fabulous as well. Glad you enjoyed your change of pace eating.
