biltong salad


  1. Toss squash in avocado oil (I like to use the spray when air frying), honey, cinnamon, cardamom, salt and pepper.
  2. Place in air-fryer at 375 for 7-8 minutes. Alternatively if you don’t have an air-fryer, roast squash in a 400 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.
  3. Cook quinoa with bone broth or water according to directions on back of package.
  4. Make dressing by mixing all ingredients in a mason jar with cap on and shake until thoroughly mixed.
  5. Place greens in salad bowl and add hot cooked quinoa. Add desired amount of dressing and mix.
  6. Add squash, pear, cashews, and biltong.
  7. Add more dressing if needed and adjust salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve immediately.

Enjoy the savory goodness!
