How to Make Butternut Squash Salad

  1. Prepare the vinaigrette: In a small saucepan whisk together maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, mustard, garlic and rosemary. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then allow to boil, stirring frequently, 2 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Prepare squash: Spray a rimmed baking sheet lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Place squash in a mound on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with thyme and season lightly with salt and pepper then toss to evenly coat.
  3. Roast butternut squash: Spread into an even layer and roast in 400 degree preheated oven 15 – 20 minutes, tossing once after 10 minutes, until tender.
  4. Toss salad ingredients: to a salad bowl add lettuce blend, squash, bacon, walnuts, red onion, feta and cranberries. Gently toss salad. Whisk dressing then drizzle over salad and lightly toss. Serve immediately after adding vinaigrette.
