Sweet roasted winter squash goes together with bitter greens like chocolate and peanut butter (high 5 if you made it through Halloween without at least one dirty little pb cup). They balance out each other’s decisive flavours and textures so well. This salad embraces all things naturally sweet and bitter plus the health benefits that come with both.
Plain, roasted squash is a staple in my house this time of year. There is a different type for every day of the week and it goes with practically everything. And all of that orangey-yellow pigment means that it is full of carotenoids (anticancer pigment power) and that you are getting SO MUCH beta-carotene (that, if all goes well, your body will turn into vitamin A).
