Roasted Butternut Salad

Roasted Butternut Salad

This is a simple salad but very tasty and colorful. Adding squash is a fun way to jazz up a salad!

Salad:

5 cups butternut squash, peeled and cubed
2 teaspoons sugar of choice (we use coconut sugar)
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 shallots, peeled and sliced
4 cups mixed greens
head red leaf lettuce
cup pumpkin seeds, toasted

Dressing:

1 cup olive oil
2 teaspoons sugar of choice
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
teaspoon Dijon mustard
teaspoon sea salt

Toss cubed squash with oil, sugar and a dash of salt and pepper.
Bake uncovered in 10X 15 pan or two smaller pans at 375 degrees until tender and caramelized (about 20 minutes.) Allow to cool.
Make dressing.
Toss everything together and serve.

Total cooking time: 45 minutes

Serves: 6-8
