Warm Cinnamon Butternut Squash Salad with a drizzle of Garlic Coconut Syrup Dressing
Have your family fall in love with this autumn salad this thanksgiving! In this recipe we used our NUCO Liquid Premium Coconut Oil to glaze our squash and Brussel sprouts with a sweet coconut flavor. And finished it off by drizzling our own special NUCO salad dressing, made with Organic Coconut Vinegar and garlic coconut oil, to give this salad a pungent sweet taste of the fall season.
