Butternut Squash & Arugula Salad

Summer is my favorite time of year (after fall). It’s not the sunshine and booty shorts… nope nope. It’s all about the squash! I know I’m weird but I LOVE squash!

I love all squash, but butternut is hands down my fave. It’s sweet, savory and is a perfect food to transition between summer and fall.

I’m pretty sure I could share about 50 recipes with it, but I already have my butternut squash and sausage pizza recipe and I should save some room for other start winter squash.
