Author Notes: Arugula tossed with roasted butternut squash, dried cranberries, and toasted walnuts.Half-Buzzed Hostess

Serves: 4

For the salad:

  • 1.5 pounds butternut squash, cut into 3/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves, toasted
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  1. Adapted liberally from Ina Garten. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the butternut squash on a sheet pan. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and toss. Roast the squash for 20-25 minutes, turning once, until tender. Meanwhile, make your dressing by whisking all ingredients together in a bowl, and adding salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place the arugula in a large salad bowl and add the roasted squash mixture, the walnuts, and cranberries. Spoon just enough vinaigrette over the salad to moisten and toss well. Serve immediately. [The salad can also be made a day in advance. Toss with dressing immediately before serving.]
