When it’s cold outside, it can be hard to find salads and veggie-based dishes that feel warming and filling. That’s where this Roasted Vegetable Salad comes in! Full of hearty root veggies, it’ll keep you going all day long.
However, the real star of this dish is the delicata squash! Squash is a great veggie to cook with in winter. Its warm, custardy texture is deeply comforting when you’re feeling a little chilled.
And delicata squash is full of benefits: it’s high in fiber, which can help normalize bowel movements and lower bad cholesterol. It also has vitamin A, which helps with eye health, and immunity-boosting vitamin C. And it’s super easy to prep because you can eat the skin!
And since the publication of our second edition Conscious Cleanse book, squash (as well as sweet potatoes!) is now cleanse-friendly. We’re currently on week two of the January cleanse, so if you’re cleansing with us this salad is a great way to get your veggies.
