"This delicious salad may be served warm or at room temperature. It takes patience to cook the vegetables properly, but it makes a wonderful side to any fall feast! Enjoy the process of creating something your family will enjoy. Substituting regular broccoli may be okay, but baby broccoli is sweeter and more suited to this dish."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I submitted this recipe, and my family and I love it. Feel free to leave the bacon off for a vegetarian side. *Step 3 should read to cook the butternut squash UNTIL tender.....Enjoy!
I was looking for something different to do with my butternut squash and this dish definitely fit the bill! It was a hit!!! I followed the recipe as written except that I used the whole squash (it was a small one, but amounted to more than a cup) and I only used 1 tbsp total of maple syrup (personal preference). I had to substitute regular broccoli for the baby broccoli as I couldn't find any baby broccoli at the store. Once the dish was ready, I thought it could use a little kick, so I added a dash of red pepper flakes. That did indeed add another depth of flavor that my boyfriend and I really liked. I served it with cornbread and garlic chicken. I will definitely make this again, and I will keep an eye out for baby broccoli so I can use it next time. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe!!!
