This Butternut Risotto is an all vegetable dish, no rice, prepared “risotto style”. Don’t worry we will do traditional risotto another time. We usually enjoy this risotto as a vegetarian dinner with a salad. We have also served it as a side dish, (side note: butternut squash pairs well with steak).
There is something about the crisp apples, sweet cranberries, and tangy feta cheese that make this salad a favorite of mine. A balsamic dressing doesn’t hurt either. Balsamic Vinegar is probably my favorite vinegar, you just can’t beat that slightly sweet tangy-ness combined with such depth of flavor.
