If you haven’t tried our Mixed Baby Kales, you’re in for a treat. This super-healthy green is tender and tasty, with enough texture to stand up to a lot of ingredients.
Here we’ve combined cubes of roasted winter squash (use butternut, pumpkin or your favorite), dried cranberries, feta cheese and toasted hazelnuts, drizzled with our zesty Sicilian Vinaigrette, for a terrific seasonal salad.
|1 1/2 pounds||winter squash (peeled, seeded and cut into 3/4-inch cubes)|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|4 ounces||Earthbound Farm Organic Mixed Baby Kales|
|1/4 cup||chopped Earthbound Farm Organic Italian Parsley|
|1/4 cup||chopped fresh mint|
|1/3 cup||Sicilian Vinaigrette|
|1/2 cup||crumbled feta cheese (about 2 oz)|
|1/3 cup||Earthbound Farm Organic Dried Cranberries|
|1/4 cup||chopped toasted hazelnuts or pecans|
Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick vegetable oil spray.
Toss the cubes of squash with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the squash to the prepared pan and arrange in a single layer so the pieces don’t touch. Roast for 10 minutes, then turn the squash pieces and continue baking until the squash is tender and slightly caramelized. Drizzle with the honey and let cool.
Place the baby kale, half of the parsley and half of the mint in a large bowl. Add some of the Sicilian Vinaigrette, tossing to coat the greens.
Transfer the greens to a large platter or shallow bowl. Sprinkle the squash, feta, cranberries, nuts and the remaining herbs over the greens. Drizzle with more of the dressing to taste and serve immediately.
