Reviews for Roasted Butternut Squash & Rice Salad
Sort By :
"I'd like to make this for a potluck and make it the night before - does the rice get hard if left in the refrigerator overnight or does the dressing keep it soft? Also, for those that used quinoa, did you cook it in water or broth? Thanks!"
"My daughter is a vegetarian and I was looking for a great recipe we could all eat. I found it. We absolutely love this recipe. I cut the olive oil in the dressing down to 1/4 cup and add extra veggies. This time I added some fresh green beans which I blanched and chopped. It works to eat at room temperature or cold."
"I made this for the first time for my book club of 12 women and it was a real winner complete with requests for the recipe. I changed the rice to basmati, but all else the same."
"This is good. A pretty and healthy side dish to add to a thanksgiving or Christmas spread."
"Delicious and easy and a healthy way to add squash to your salad!"
