“I had an idea but couldn't find a corresponding recipe ANYWHERE so I made one up. The Picky One requested I season the stuffed squash with garlic. This is what I came up with & the results were great! Vegan, too. This seems to make a lot but the 4 of us finished it all! It is satisfying without being overly filling. I want to use this vinaigrette on other things like roasted brussels sprouts.”
