Spotlight on the Ingredients
The tanginess from the pickled beets plays off the sweet roasted butternut squash. We slow roast our butternut squash so that each piece is tender and the sweetness is really drawn out. There is something about roasted veggies that are so sought after on a cold day. The goat cheese adds the desired creaminess and added tang. We love featuring goat cheese in our meals because it offers so much dimension to any dish. The oranges add bright juiciness and the radish and cabbage add tons of crunchy texture. The mix of crunchy and creamy ingredients makes this meal really interesting to our tastebuds and keeps you coming back for more. The best part is that everything is topped with some tasty pistachios. They are the perfect ingredient to finish off the meal. Everything is mixed with couscous and our delicious greenhouse greens.
If you have been paying attention to the news (or your grocery shelves) lately, access to lettuce has been very tight. When you do find it on the shelves, lettuce is very expensive. We are excited about the opportunity to boast about our greens! We grow them in our greenhouse in Coaldale AB. The local proximity means less travel pollution, and you pay less for food miles. We grow our greens sustainably, which means that we use less water than growing in a field and we don't use pesticides. These greens are a true winner. They are so tasty, offer great crunch, and are good for the planet and our bodies!
Orange and Mint Dressing
The orange and mint dressing is very refreshing and pulls everything together perfectly. The citrus in this dressing offers just the right amount of zest. We pair it with a drizzle of honey for added sweetness and apple cider vinegar for a little kick. The final secret ingredient is fresh mint which brings out the refreshing notes within the salad. When combined, this mixture is heavenly. It's the combination of ingredients and dressing that really makes this salad stand out from the crowd.
Packed with Vitamin C
There is nothing we need more in the winter months. This salad really features and elevates your intake of vitamin C. It is a citrus-heavy salad that also features other ingredients packed with the vitamin. You'll find surprising doses in beets and butternut squash.
Vitamin C is a nutrient your body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscle and collagen in bones. Vitamin C is also vital to your body's healing process. Your body does not produce vitamin C, which means that you have to get it from your diet.
