Smitten Kitchen’s Butternut Squash Salad
Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving weekend with your family and friends. I trust that after four days everyone is well rested and well fed. I know I am. I think I’ve come to a conclusion that deep fried turkey is my new favorite thing. And I think as long as you follow all the safety tips that come with deep frying a fairly big bird, you won’t end up in the same predicament as William Shatner.
If deep fried turkey still sounds intimidating to you and are looking for something just as good for your next holiday potluck, then this butternut squash salad from Smitten Kitchen is the way to go. It is VERY good. I have never cooked with farro before but you cook it just like you would rice, only the cooking time is much longer. And toasted pepitas are just pumpkin seeds that you could either buy off the shelf or roast in an oven yourself with salt and butter.
The dish keeps in the fridge very well and I think I may even like it better as a cold salad. For the complete recipe click here. And if you do make it let me know what you think!
