Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash Salad

Tonight, on the menu is one of my favorite new recipes: Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash Salad. For dinner I typically make a meat with a side like a sweet potato or broccoli with cheese.  I wanted to develop a side that is more complex with pops of flavor. This salad has all of the texture and flavors you could want!
