Sous Vide Butternut Squash Salad

Butternut squash is a fun winter squash that can be taken in a variety of ways. It's often served as soups or purees but I also like to serve it in a chunky salad. I combine the squash with walnuts, goat cheese, sage and a drizzle of maple syrup for a savory and sweet salad.

Depending on the ripeness and age of the squash it will usually need to be cooked for 45 to 60 minutes. There is a wide variety of winter squash but most of them benefit from sous vide and are cooked in a similar way. Depending on the type you are cooking the squash will tenderize after 25 to 60 minutes.
