Delicata Squash and Kale Salad

11 November, 2014 0 comments Leave a comment

No picture of the finished salad here. The pictures did a disservice to the delectable salad. So here's a picture of the pre-roasted delicata squash. It's one of the easiest squashes to prepare. It cuts easily and the seeds are easy to remove. In fact, that grapefruit spoon there is usually used to remove squash seeds, not to eat grapefruit. This is a quick easy salad to prepare. Eat it as a main course or an accompaniment. Serves 4-6 as a salad or 3 as a main course.

1 large delicata squash
2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
1 tablespoon maple syrup
