Salad Mix

Ingredients:

6  oz    Spinach, baby, triple washed

6  oz    Watercress, red, washed and dried

6  oz    Arugula, baby

3  oz    Radicchio, quartered, then 1/4” cut

Ingredients:

4   lbs     Butternut Squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1.25” cubes

3   Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method:

Season squash with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

Roast at 385 ° F for approximately 20 minutes, until cooked but still firm. A fork should be able to slide in with very little resistance when they’re done.

Set oven to 350° F and bake for 8-10 minutes.
