My Favorite Salad

Butternut Squash Salad

Steve and I aren't chefs – in fact, we rarely cook (unless you count Tombstone Veggie pizzas). So one of our go-to restaurants is Goose Island Brewery. They have great food and – obviously – great beer. I always get their kale salad and I finally decided to mimic it at home ... adding a bit more of this and that, so may I say, just might be better than the original! 

Butternut Squash Salad

2 C washed kale
1/2 C cubed butternut squash
3 oz. crumbled goat cheese
sprinkling of pepitas

lemon vinaigrette
1 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Juice of 1 lemon (about 4 tablespoons lemon juice) 
½ C olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
