recipe: roasted butternut squash salad

i love interesting salads. i am always trying to think up new combinations. i was inspired by a salad from one of my favorite restaurants and decided to try to create it at home.

the combination of roasted butternut squash, gorgonzola cheese, and pecans is just amazing.

{roasted butternut squash salad with gorgonzola and pecans}


[amount is up to you based on how big of a salad you want]

mixed greens [i just buy a big tub at costco]
gorgonzola cheese crumbles

roasted butternut squash, cut into bite sized pieces
1 bottle champagne vinaigrette dressing by gerards


peel and slice the butternut squash into thin strips. layout on a sprayed cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt. place in the oven on broil until it is soft enough that you can cut through with a fork and the edges are a little brown. [turn once]
place pecans in a small skillet over medium heat. toast pecans for about 10 minutes.
arrange salad putting down mixed greens, roasted squash, gorgonzola crumbles, toasted pecans, and some champagne vinaigrette.
