Summertime means bikini time... so, time to prep that summer body. That means healthy eating and time to lose those precious pounds gained during the winter, eating all the comfort food and all the desserts. I have a huge appetite and I love food. As a result, for me, that time has come... time to cut down on my carbs for a little while. And I mean little, because I have no will power to keep the clean, healthy eating going for long. I've been eating this salad everyday this last week and I can'

This salad is big enough for the main course, yet light for a warm summer evening. I love the sweet Thai chili sauce vinaigrette because it complements the fruit and coconut on the shrimp, but you could easily serve this salad with a teriyaki sesame dressing if you prefer a more savory taste. I’ve accounted for about 1/8 pound of ahi and 1/4 pound of shrimp per person. You can adjust as you like!
This easy but stunning salad features half moons of maple-Dijon roasted delicata squash, sweet-tart pomegranate seeds, toasted nuts, creamy goat cheese and bitter greens. A quick maple balsamic dressing ties it all together. It’s the perfect mix of flavors and textures and makes for a gorgeous first course to a holiday meal, or a satisfying main course when paired with a rotisserie chicken. If you can’t find delicata squash, swap it out for cubed butternut squash. Also, feel free to use shaved Parmigiano or Pecorino in place of the goat cheese (or leave it out altogether!). Dried cranberries or cherries are a good alternative to the pomegranate seeds.
