Ingredients
  • 1 cups small butternut squash peeled and chopped into ½” cubes or sliced (2 )
  • 2 cups small or 1 large red beet chopped into ½” cubes (2 )
  • 1 ripe bosc pear sliced
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 10 ounces spring green mix or greens of choice
  • 1 teaspoon white chia seeds
For the Maple Orange Cinnamon Dressing:
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Peel the butternut squash and either slice it into ½” slices or dice it into ½” cubes (or both).
  3. Lay the butternut squash on a baking sheet and drizzle enough olive oil over the pieces to coat them well.
  4. Sprinkle the butternut squash with salt.
  5. Peel and chop the beets and lay the pieces on a large piece of foil. Fold the foil, completely covering the beets, creating a foil packet. Place this packet on the baking sheet next to the butternut squash.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the vegetables for 50 minutes, or until the butternut squash is browned and crispy. Remove from the oven and allow the vegetables to cool.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the dressing.
  8. In a large serving bowl, add all of the salad ingredients (including the roasted vegetables). Toss in desired amount of Maple-Orange-Cinnamon Dressing and serve!
