Directions

  1. For the salad: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Toss the butternut squash with the oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast until the cubes are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Let cool. 
  3. Meanwhile, bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the haricot vert for 1 minute, then drain and cool under cold water. Cut into 1-inch pieces. 
  4. Layer the squash, haricot vert, pecans, Cheddar, cranberries, fried onions, romaine and apples in a large serving bowl.
  5. For the dressing: Whisk together apple cider, white wine vinegar and honey in a bowl or measuring cup. While whisking continuously, slowly pour in the oil. Whisk in 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.
