Harvest Salad with Maple Glazed Delicata Squash

Nourishing & Delicious!

Kale yeah! Reshot this HARVEST SALAD for the website today and it tasted even better than I remembered.

Massaged kale, ROASTED MAPLE-GLAZED DELICATA SQUASH, dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and the yummiest CITRUS Dressing.  The dressing is actually my favorite part of the salad — it’s lemon juice, maple syrup, EVOO, shallots and a touch of Dijon.   A little sweet, a little savory, a little tangy…. A lot delicious!

This recipe is from a friend and has been one of my Fall favorites for a long time.  It’s equally fabulous as part of a dinner or a holiday dinner.
