Simply beautiful autumn salad with roasted butternut squash and burrata

I love autumn with all it’s beautiful colours and rich and flavourful fruits and veggies. I think it’s my favourite season. So this recipe, is like a warm autumn day in September. It’s the ultimate autumn salad with roasted butternut squash, radicchio and burrata. It’s so simple but yet so complex in taste. 

It’s a quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe or a light but elegant starter. I love the combination of the sweet and tasty butternut squash, the beautiful bitter radicchio, creamy burrata and crunchy almonds. Really delicious! Topped with a wonderful light lime and olive oil dressing. Each individual ingredient is so simple but put together they make the ultimate autumn salad! I can highly recommend to use burrata and not opt for mozzarella. Burrata tastes way better and has a wonderful creamy texture. Once you tasted burrata you won’t use mozzarella for salads anymore.

Of course this recipe is perfect for all fructose malabsorption sufferers. All pumpkin types are fructosefree and perfect for a fructosefree diet.
