Pomegranate, Biltong and Roasted Squash Salad

This delicious Whole30 friendly salad was submitted to us by the talented Amanda from @thekitcheneer (follow her on Instagram for great photos & recipes and check out her blog!)

From Amanda's Blog:
"I love tearing off little bites [of biltong] and adding them to any salad or basically any where you would add bacon anyways. It definitely surprised me with how much it tastes like bacon and home made jerky at the same time. SO SO GOOD.

And if you aren’t familiar with biltong it is a high protein snack with high quality beef that is air-dried for 14 days and isn’t cooked like regular jerky. The result is a tender slice of beef without any sugar or artificial ingredients"
