Author Notes: I have made this salad several different ways and they are all great. I consider this to be a great lunch salad, or you can serve it with something else for dinner. I am assuming that you have already roasted the squash for the salad ahead of time. Some variations: use cubed, cooked beets instead of apple; add a pile of sauteed shiitake mushrooms; use pear instead of apple. (The photo I submitted has the shiitake mushrooms.)roryrabbitfield

Serves 2

  • 2 cups torn mizuna greens
  • 1/2 sliced, cored apple
  • 1 cup cubed, roasted winter squash
  • 4 sliced radishes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  1. Put in a large mixing bowl: the mizuna greens, apple, roasted squash, radish and sesame seeds.
  2. In a small separate bowl make the dressing: mix the olive oil, lemon juice, honey and season with salt & pepper.
  3. Toss the salad with the dressing, using the amount you like. I don't like to over-dress a salad.
  4. Divide salad into two serving bowls. Scatter the goat cheese on top of the salads.
