If you’re like me, you still crave salads in the middle of winter (because I feel like salad is always a good idea and they are so simple to make). Well this salad is the perfect robust salad filled with warming, wintery foods. Let’s take a closer peek at what yummy, nourishing foods I decided to incorporate into this salad.
So for this Roasted Squash + Pear Arugula Salad we have:
☆ acorn squash
☆ cannellinii beans
☆ vegan parmesan cheese
☆ creamy maple tahini dressing
This salad recipe truly is so simple, amazingly flavorful, has just the right amount of sweetness, and has some really nutrient dense foods that will no doubt fill you up (I am suprised at how filling this salad is!).
I am a firm believer in food being fuel and medicine for our bodies. I think that I naturally gravitate towards including a variety of different veggies and fruits in my diet, so I don’t always focus on the health benefits and nutrients that exist within particular foods, I just try to “eat the rainbow”. This Roasted Acorn Squash + Pear Arugula Salad is rich in protein, and yes, even that there is no meat! This salad also has significant levels of vitamin C, vitamin A, thiamin, pantothenic acid, and other B-family vitamins, potassium, magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, phosphorous, and calcium… I mean you get the gist. It’s good for you, haha. This salad would be really great for your next potluck or large family gathering as it feeds a lot and like I said, is very filling. Ready to give it a try?!

Creative recipe to burn through our CSA share! We added a few pinches of Maldon salt to the dressing. Next time, we’ll add something crunchy, such as toasted pecans or breadcrumbs, to add another texture. We’ll also reduce the amount of maple syrup as the acorn squash we got was super sweet not as well as the pear.
This looks delicious
So glad you like it! Thank you ?
