Feelin' like Fall Food

Well, Labor Day has passed, it is still in the 90s in So. Cal but I am craving some fall food! So tonight I am making a Butternut Squash, Cranberry Quinoa Salad. I am going to cook it all but then serve it cold so it's not so heavy in this heat. I found this recipe on Pinterest but I am putting my own spin on it by adding goat cheese crumbles and grilled chicken. 

Butternut Squash Cranberry Quinoa Salad Recipe- Serves 4


2 cups butternut squash- cubed and baked

1/3 cup cranberries, dried

1 garlic clove (cook with quinoa)
