This Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad is a delicious and flavorful quinoa salad made of caramelized butternut squash, creamy goat cheese, roasted grapes, and basil! Make ahead and store in the fridge until ready to serve!
How much more can I completely adore all things fall?
Never taking off my Ugg slippers, living in oversized sweaters, Saturday mornings of coffee and baileys and adorning far too many scarves. Just add a scarf to any outfit and it’s instantly public worthy.
My husband tries to act surprised when I come out ready for date night, flaunted my latest addition to my scarf collection. I mean, it was on sale at Target. We all know how that goes….vortex that grabs ahold of you and spits you out with seventeen things that are not needed.
For my second edition of fall inspired quinoa recipes, not only do we have caramelized butternut squash (hello lover!), but there is roasted grapes. May sound strange, but you need to get on the roasted grapes train. As they roast, the natural sweetness only heightens. Which pairs perfect with the butternut squash and the creaminess of the goat cheese.
This butternut squash quinoa salad dish is the epitome of what every fall dish should be! The nutty quinoa mixed with the caramelized butternut squash and roasted grapes screams everything Thanksgiving, as it can be made ahead of time then reheated before serving.
Now that is one dish to be celebrated!
