Warm Rice Salad with Spicy Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Butternut Squash
This is the quintessential autumn salad. It’s seasoned to perfection, roasted to perfection and the very perfect vinaigrette is served with it.
You could argue it’s the perfect salad.
This is how I did it:
I preheated my oven oven to 425. I then combined the Brussels sprouts and squash cubes with 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Then I seasoned liberally with salt, pepper and paprika (about 1/2 tsp each).
I mixed them well and roasted the veggies for 30 minutes.
Then I cooked 1 cup of rice according to the package directions.
Then I prepared the vinaigrette;)
When the veggies were done I combined them with the cooked rice and the vinaigrette.
Butternut squash and Brussels sprouts are seasoned then roasted then combined with fresh hot rice and tossed with a zesty vinaigrette.

Mix well the roast for 30 minutes.
You can take this time to cook the rice (you’ll need one cup uncooked rice).
Prepare the vinaigrette: mix together the 1/4 cup olive oil, cider vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper and sesame oil (I used a measuring cup).
Once the veggies are roasted combine them with the cooked rice then stir in the vinaigrette.
