Weekly Ad Recipe – Broccoli and Squash Medley

Broccoli and Squash Medley Recipe - www.cobornsblog.com

This is such a wonderful side dish and is extremely simple to make. It makes a large bowl so it is great when serving a crowd. It took me less than 30 minutes to get it ready and the mixture of colors made this side dish just beautiful. I am a lover of any kind of squash but butternut is my all time favorite. This would be a wonderful side dish served during those holidays dinners fast approaching.  Enjoy….I did!
