As much as one wants to hold on to summer, you can’t help but feel the beauty of fall setting in and enveloping you within. The mornings are slightly crisp and the peppers, squashes, apples are putting up a show at the farm stands and grocery stores.
Speaking about squash, the butternut squash is my most favorite one. Usually a butternut squash soup marks the beginning of Autumn in my home, but this year I thought a salad will be apt to reflect how I feel. A feeling for summer to linger and an anticipation for the Autumn bounty.
The Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Warm Cider Vinaigrette by Ina Garten was just perfect for this Ina Friday. This month we are showcasing Ina’s recipes for soups, salads and sides. And I just had to make this salad. I tweaked the recipe a little to make it lighter but it is delicious. This recipe is modified from a recipe on FOOD NETWORK.
Please do check what my fellow bloggers have come for this Ina Friday.
