Butternut Squash ‘Carpaccio’ Salad

What’s great about this dish is that you can substitute pretty much any ingredient and get the same results. If you’re watching your sodium, you can use Syrian cheese, which is much less salty than feta cheese. Don’t have butternut squash? Use pumpkin or sweet potato. Sub craisins for pomegranates in a pinch. See the recipe for this delicious butternut squash salad below.
