Roasted Grape, Butternut Squash and Kale Salad

Have you ever roasted grapes before? And then put them in a salad?

Roasted Grape and Butternut Squash Salad

No? Well me neither until I did a review for the Food52 Mighty Salads Cookbook. I mean I don’t think it could get better – a salad with with veggies, fruit, and cheese? Yes please!

The chapters are broken down to Leafy Salads (like this one), Less-Leafy Salads, Grain & Bean Salads, Pasta & Bread Salads, Fish & Seafood Salads, and Meat Salads. So as you can tell you have quite a bit to sort through.

I tried out the Bloody Mary Steak Salad – and although the idea sounded great it fell pretty flat. The Grilled Ratatouille & Bulgar Salad also sounded like one I might enjoy but decided on this Roasted Grape, Butternut Squash, and Kale Salad due to the season.

A few suggestions: The spice mix was great for my palate but a little too spicy for the toddlers so I’d recommend taking out the red pepper flakes and increasing the sweet paprika. Also on the vinaigrette I’d reduce the mustard to 2 teaspoons so it’s not as strong and the Parmesan will pop through more.

Fruit, veggies and cheese will make this Roasted Grape and Butternut Squash Salad your new favorite

If you haven’t noticed my cookbook reviews have a central theme – salsas, pizzas, and now salads.
