Detox Green Salad With Homemade Greek Yogurt Dressing

by

Ingredients

  • 1 precut packaged butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup olive or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 bunch of kale, spinach, and arugula (optional add in: steamed brussels sprouts)
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1 avocado peeled and diced

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Put the squash on baking sheet pan and sprinkle with the olive oil, cumin and season with salt and pepper. Spread the squash out across the pan.
  2. Roast the squash for about 15 minutes or until tender, then scrape under the pieces using a metal spatula angled down toward the bottom of the pan and toss them around, spreading them out again.  After tossing the squash, set aside and cool for a few minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, vinegar, yogurt, maple syrup and shallots, then season with salt and pepper. 
  4. In a large bowl, combine the kale, spinach, arugula, roasted squash and sunflower seeds. Drizzle the salad with enough dressing to lightly coat, then toss to combine. (Save any extra dressing for another use.) Add the avocado, gently toss again and enjoy.
