I’ve got the perfect butternut squash salad for you today to help balance out all the holiday food that’s coming up! This recipe would be a great way to start out Thanksgiving dinner next week or simply to enjoy between now and then (for dinner or lunch). It’s hearty enough to eat on its own or great paired with a batch of Whole-Grain Pumpkin Muffins for a meatless meal. And bonus, this butternut squash salad is tasty leftover the next day (just hold back the avocado until just before serving), so you can double the recipe to set yourself up with some quick real food lunches for the week!

Any substitute for tahini? We cannot have sesame seeds…
While we haven’t tried any substitutes for this particular recipe, you might try either Greek yogurt, sunflower butter, almond, or cashew butter. The taste will be a bit different, but it might be a good sub. I would definitely experiment with the dressing before serving for any large gathering :) . – Nicole
This would be great with the pumpkin cooked in an air fryer actually. I could see this becoming a quick and easy meal idea in our house.
This was excellent. Omitted the feta and served over spinach, kept everything else the same. I loved it and will make it regularly! Thanks for another great recipe!
Looks like the ideal salad for supper tonight. Thanks!
As a food allergy mom, I appreciate your note on checking the tahini for nuts. Thank you!
