Check out this unusual and delicious salad from Nourished Kitchen that utilizes several items from our Local Produce Box this week. Butternut squash and beets with a curly kale base and a kombucha vinaigrette – yum! I halved the recipe and it still made a ton.
For the Salad:
1 cup pecan halves
1 small butternut squash
2 bunches curly kale, torn into pieces
3 Sweet Tango apples, cored and thinly sliced (I used Honeycrisp)
3 medium beets of any variety, chopped into 1/4-inch dice
1/4 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
1/4 cup sultanas
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint
For the Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup kombucha tea
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Dijon-style mustard
1 shallot, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
