Caramelized Squash Salad with Pistachios and Goat Cheese

Ingredients
1
cup orange juice
3
tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 1/2
tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
1
tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1 1/2
pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded, halved crosswise and cut into 1/2-inch wide strips
 
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/3
cup olive oil
6
cups mixed salad greens
1
small head radicchio, cored and thinly sliced
1/2
cup roasted salted pistachio nuts
3
ounces goat cheese, crumbled (optional)

Directions

  1. For marinade, in a small bowl stir together orange juice, maple syrup, mustard and ginger. Set aside 1/2 cup of the marinade. Place butternut squash pieces in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Pour remaining marinade over squash. Seal bag; marinate, refrigerated, for 1 to 4 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. Drain marinade from squash, discarding marinade. Place squash on prepared baking sheet. Roast squash until tender and lightly browned in spots, 26 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven; set aside.
  3. For dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together the reserved marinade, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil. Drizzle 2 to 3 tablespoons of dressing over warm squash; toss to combine. In a large bowl combine the mixed greens, radicchio, and half of the pistachios. Toss with half the dressing. Gently toss roasted squash into salad. Top with remaining pistachios and goat cheese. Pass remaining dressing. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
  4. In a large salad bowl, gently toss greens mixture with roasted squash and garnish with remaining pistachios and goat cheese, if desired. Pass remaining dressing.
