Raw Butternut Squash Slaw is a refreshing and bold slaw with a nod to autumn. Raw squash is mild and slightly sweet with a heavier texture that mixes well with light, crunchy cabbage and a blend of spicy, tangy flavors. Instead of having to wait for it to slowly roast in an oven, this recipe lets you enjoy butternut squash in no time at all. The texture is different than cooked squash ? it?s similar to raw carrots ? and the flavor isn?t as sweet. If you don?t typically like squash, you may still love this slaw. Serve this flavorful slaw for dinner tonight and don?t forget about it when the holidays roll around. The clean, fresh flavor is a nice contrast when served with heavy main dishes like beef and pork roasts or turkey. Read more: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/raw-butternut-squash-slaw/#ixzz2CJNUBlUK
