Warm Butternut, Cabbage, Quinoa, and Almond Salad – This warm winter salad combines filling and colorful vegetables to create a meal that will satisfy and restore your natural glow!
It’s Super Bowl Sunday and I’m daring to post a salad recipe. Trust me though, come tomorrow morning many of us will all be wanting to awaken from our hot-wing-junkie stupor. So why not plan on Monday night being a meatless Monday, salad kind of night? This recipe for Warm Butternut, Red Cabbage, Quinoa, and Almond Salad is just the ticket. It’s filling and savory enough for dinner, but it’s packed with colorful veggies to help your glow return after a fun-filled weekend of finger food, beer, and Super Bowl commercials. Oh, and football too, I guess…

2. Avocado Lime Yogurt Dipping Dressing (perfect for dipping said cauliflower wings)
For this recipe I was lucky enough to get an intensely sweet butternut squash and this crunchy red cabbage from my CSA (crop share). Aren’t my veggies pretty?
I know my kitty has been appearing in a lot of my posts lately. He’s decided to make this chair by my chopping block his spot while I cook and photograph recipes for Simple Seasonal. I was beginning to think that he might be my little sous chef, but here he is, sleeping on the job. I can’t fire him, though. His fluffiness and purrs redeem him every time.
Now back to the recipe… It’s savory with a touch of sweet, but mostly nuttiness. It will restore your healthful constitution after a weekend of game day revelry. So have some fun this weekend!
