Butternut Squash Salad with Feta, Dates, & Chile


Thinly slice the chile(s) and combine in a small bowl with the vinegar.
Peel the squash and chop into thin-as-possible matchsticks. (I like to do this by cutting the top part into rounds, stacking those, and julienning. Then you can halve the bottom part, scoop out the seeds, and julienne from there.) Add the squash matchsticks to a large bowl and season generously with salt.

Halve, pit, and slice the dates. Add to the butternut squash, along with the chiles and vinegar. Break apart the feta with your fingers and sprinkle on top. Drizzle with oil and toss. Adjust the salt, vinegar, and oil as needed.

Transfer to a serving platter if that’s your thing. Eat up!

At More Than Olives we thoughtfully select specialty foods that will enhance your kitchen culinary experiences. We continue to look for new products and we welcome you to visit our Folsom store for tasting experiences.

“This is a great little place. The staff is super friendly and helpful. We were visiting from GA and couldn’t take the large bottles of oil or vinegar back with us on the plane so they helped us pick out our favorites and shipped them to us. It all arrived in perfect condition. Everything is so good but our favorite is the Sex on the Beach balsamic vinegar! If you’re in Folsom you have to go! ❤️”

“The olive oils and vinegars are so tasty. I love how easy it is to refill the bottles. I am looking forward to salads, marinades and more this summer as fresh fruits and vegetable become available. Love the staff and love the quality of the products.”
