A question about a recipe: Northern Spy's Kale Salad

Dc6a1705 ac73 4056 89f5 fce83d4b5bb6  2014 1030 garde shop black walnut bowl mid 009

I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Northern Spy's Kale Salad" from Genius Recipes. It says to roast the kabocha squash cubes.
I've made kabocha Japanese-style (simmered in mirin & soy sauce), where the skin is left on. Is it necessary to peel the squash here? The idea of peeling kabocha is intimidating.

The easiest method might be to cut the squash into wedges, and then cut the skin off each wedge individually. That way you aren't fighting with the ridges of the squash and you get uniform pieces that you can cut!
