This butternut squash salad is one of my favorite to bring in my lunch box for lunch at work. And each time I do so, one of my colleagues exclaims “oh! what a beautiful salad!”. And let’s be honest, I’m always happy to hear that. Especially since I started this diet which is seen by many people as boresom.

How to meal prep this butternut squash salad?

I don’t know if I can actually call this meal preping as I am not familiar with it. But anyway, this is how I organize myself to do this, in order to make it quicker.

When I have a butternut squash, I simply roast it (click here to know what is a butternut squash and how to roast it) and then store it in the fridge. Then I use the roasted butternut squash for many recipes like this salad or my butternut, chickpeas and feta salad but also for a delicious butternut breakfast bowl or even a chocolate cake.

You can either serve this as a main dish or a starter according to quantities.
