  • 4 cups spinach
  • 1/2 lb butternut squash of 1/2 lb of pre cut squash
  • 1 apple
  • 1/3 cup craisins
  • 1/3 cup pecans
  • 8.5 oz quinoa
  • 1/3 cup honey mustard dressing
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup goat cheese
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Peel and dice butternut squash, if needed, into ½” cubes
  • Line a baking sheet with foil or a silicon mat.  Add squash, drizzle with olive oil, and top with salt and pepper.  Bake for 10-15 minutes
  • While that bakes, dice the apple into small cubes, dice pecans, if whole, and cook quinoa as directed on the package.  We like to use this instant brown rice and quinoa mixture to speed up the process.
  • Add everything except the squash to a large bowl, crumbling the goat cheese as you place it in the bowl.  Gently mix to evenly coat in dressing.
  • Add the butternut squash and gently toss, again, to roughly mix.
  • Enjoy!  Add some chicken or tofu for additional protein.
