  • 3 tbsp pecans, chopped
  • 3 tbsp cranberries 
  • 4 cups arugula

Maple Mustard Vinaigrette Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp Wild Groves Ascolano Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar 
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup 
  • 1 shallot, finely minced 
  • Pinch of Cayenne or Aleppo Pepper

  1. First, preheat your oven to 385 degrees Fahrenheit for the squash. Lay the squash pieces on an oiled baking sheet and season with salt, pepper, olive oil, and nutmeg. Roast for 25-30 minutes until golden brown and tender.
  2. While the squash is roasting, make the dressing. For the dressing, add all ingredients to a small bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  3. To assemble the salad, add the arugula to a bowl first. Then, add the microgreens if using, the pecans, and the dried cranberries. 
  4. Once the squash has cooled, add a generous amount of squash on top of the salad and add the dressing. Toss and serve immediately.
