Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Salad

SOOOOO good.. I was really surprised by this one. I even had it next day as lunch 🙂


1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed

2 tablespoons extra-virgin oil

1 teaspoon salt

6 ounces spinach & arugula mix

2 large apples or 3 small apples

1/2 cup balsamic vinaigrette (she used a orange-cranberry balsamic vinaigrette)

5 ounces goat cheese (she used the almond-milk vegan soft cheese)

1/3 cup pecans chopped



Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. In a bowl, toss the squash with the olive oil and salt – then arrange the squash on the baking sheet in a single layer and bake for 20-25 minutes. Then let cool for 10 minutes.

In a salad bowl (or individual bowls) toss together the mixed greens, squash, apple and balsamic vinaigrette. Top with cheese and pecans.
