Butternut Squash Purée with a Kale salad and Chia Seed Dressing

A cold evening in September led to this dinner. I also had just gotten back from our local farmers market. I had purchased kale, butternut squash, honey that had been jarred that morning, farmers market pesto, sprouts, yellow cucumbers and now I just needed to put them all together. I decided to make butternut squash purée topped with some sour cream and pesto. The salad was made with steamed kale, sprouts, yellow cucumber and a chia seed dressing.

Chia Seed Dressing
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ onion, diced
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon honey
