RECIPE: Delicata Squash Salad

I’ve been wondering what to do with those gorgeous yellow and green-striped squash I’ve been seeing hanging around the supermarket.

Per my usual, I’m either gonna grind it up (smoothie) or green it up (salad).  In this case, I chose to green it up! Not the most simple recipe ever, but if you cook and boil while you chop, it only takes a few more than 20 minutes. And there’s plenty to go around or last all week in the fridge.
