Ingredients

Sweet and Salty Pepitas:

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Scrub the acorn squash. Slice it crosswise into 1/2-inch rings. Remove and discard the pulp and seeds. Combine the squash rings with 1/4 cup of the oil, the pimenton and some salt and pepper in a large bowl and toss to coat. Spread the squash on a baking sheet and roast until tender, 20 to 40 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, shallot, mustard and sugar in a small bowl. Add the remaining 1/4 cup oil in a steady stream, whisking constantly. Toss the greens and cheese with half of the dressing in a large salad bowl. Season with salt and pepper and toss again. Arrange the squash rings over the top and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Scatter the Sweet and Salty Pepitas over the squash and serve.
