Here is a heart-healthy salad that pulls out all the stops for the fall and winter season. Delicately roasted winter squash, toasted walnuts, delicious greens and a simple dressing will make it a hit at your table.
- 6 cups arugula or raw spinach (prewashed and ready to serve)
- 1 acorn squash, roasted, peeled, diced
- 1 cup toasted walnuts
- 1/2 cup diced sourdough bread
- Dressing: Light spray of olive oil, balsamic vinegar to taste, cracked black pepper, chopped fresh parsley, small squeeze of lemon
Roast the acorn or butternut squash until it is tender. Cut it in half, remove the seeds and then remove the squash from the peel with a spoon. Allow to cool and dice into large 1 inch cubes. Place the arugula in a bowl with the toasted walnuts, acorn squash, and bread. Toss lightly with the dressing ingredients. Serve immediately.
You can use any kind of winter squash. The goal is to have about 2-3 cups of roasted, diced winter squash for the salad. This is a great way to use leftover roasted winter squash.
