Whilst we love the mix of flavours created through combining a mature blue cheese with the creamy butternut squash and crunchy pecans, we realise they may not be for everyone.
So, feel free to switch out ingredients to ensure this salad is right for your family. Honey roasted sweet potato would be a great option in place of butternut squash.
And, if blue cheese is a little too intense for your liking, then a mild goat’s cheese or feta would make a great alternative.
Don’t like pecans? Walnuts or even sliced almonds would be delicious too!
Plus when it comes to effort, very little is needed here as most of the time is hands off while the butternut squash and onion roast away happily meaning you have time to tick off any other items that might be on your to-do list.
So get-to-roasting and enjoy this delicious winter butternut squash salad!
