Squash & Goat Cheese Dip

Squash has got to be one of favorite vegetables. Whether it’s spaghetti squash, summer, delicata, acorn, or butternut…I love finding ways to use it. It’s versatile, flavorful, and full of nutritious benefits like fiber, B vitamins, vitamin C, A, and magnesium. With lots of holiday parties last weekend, I thought I’d make a dip/appetizer with the acorn squash for you all to try at home too! 

I served my dip with Triscuit triangles at the holiday parties this past weekend
Another way to enjoy the dip was apart of this chartcuterie board.

  3. Once squash is cool enough to touch, scoop it out, place in bowl and mix in the goat cheese, salt, and paprika

  4. Take about half of your pomegranates & pistachios and mix them into the tip. Use the remainder for the top. Serve warm or cold!
