I love when a salad fills me up and is a full meal. There is so much flavor in this one dish and it is so filling, you will feel light and satisfied and because of the butternut squash you wont be hungry until the morning!
This is a great base salad, if you want to turn it into a meal, add chicken, tuna, sliced steak, grilled tofu, goat cheese, brie cheese, or even cottage cheese. Adding turmeric to the salad dressing, doesn’t change the flavor, but creates a golden yellow color to the dish and lots and lots of health benefits even in that small amount!
I love Moroccan cuisine! I love how they incorporate cinnamon into a savory meal! If you don’t have all of these spices at home, I encourage you to invest in them and then anytime you see paprika in a recipe, add a little sumac too.
I know this seems like a lot of olive oil, but it really makes this dish! It is so buttery and soft, and yet not mushy at the same time. And you can feel good about eating it because turmeric is so healthy for you! Make it and eat it in moderation!
