Ingredients

Kale Salad with Butternut Squash & Pomegranates

  • 5 packed cups baby kale (175 grams)
  • 1 package Cece's Noodle Co. Butternut Squash Fettuccini Noodles (or 4 cups butternut squash noodles/300 grams)
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (80 grams)
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • salt, to taste

Tahini Balsamic Dressing

  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • optional: water, to thin it out to your preference

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss butternut squash with oil and cinnamon and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes until crispy. When there are 5 minutes left, place walnuts and pumpkin seeds on another baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. Salt nuts and seeds when they are done.
  • While the butternut squash noodles are baking, in a small bowl add all the ingredients for the dressing and whisk to combine. Add some water if you want a thinner consistency. Set aside.
  • Once noodles and nuts  and seeds are done, add all the salad ingredients to a large bowl. Toss with the dressing and enjoy!
