How to make Butternut Squash and Feta Salad
When it comes to creating a salad I like to think of the greens as a blank canvas. It’s the perfect background for adding colorful foods that help broaden the palate. Dressing a salad with nutrient-dense foods can be as simple or elaborate as you’d like.
Reaching the recommended 3-5 servings of vegetables per day can be tricky, especially if you typically wait until dinner to fit them in. This simple salad contains 3 servings of vegetables! Two cups of mixed greens provide 2 servings and 1 cup of cooked yams adds another serving.
Our Butternut Squash and Feta Salad is simply delicious and it’s packed with nutrients like calcium, iron, vitamins A, B, and C, and heart-healthy fiber. Enjoy!
