Roasted Beet and Butternut Squash Salad
by Andrew Chalk
Fogo de Chão has just introduced two new salads for the Fall. Kale and Orange Slices offers the crisp texture of kale with the sweetness of fresh orange slices. The Roasted Beet and Butternut Squash Salad combines the unique flavors of ripe beets with the sweet autumnal notes of butternut squash. We tasted them at a media event at the Addison location this week and wholeheartedly say that both of these salads are Crave Recommended.
Plus, don’t you love the irony that carnivore heaven Fogo de Chão would likely be a contender for Best Salad Bar just considering the salad bar on its merits. Consider: prosciutto, hearts of palm, Parmesan cheese, smoked salmon, hearts of palm, mozzarella and, did we say, hearts of palm? I went through a lot of the salad bar favorites and was impressed not just by the selection but also the quality of each of the parts. Small wonder that, early in the week, the place was packed. Topping it off, the price is 50% off if you just come in for salad.
