Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Brush beets with oil. Wrap in foil. Place foil packet directly on oven rack; roast for 45 to 60 minutes or until beets are tender.
  2. Peel squash; halve butternut squash and remove seeds. Cut squash into 1-inch pieces. Arrange pieces in a 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Roast squash alongside the beets for 15 minutes. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of the Marinated Red Onion Vinaigrette over squash; toss to coat. Roast for 5 to 10 minutes more or until tender. Slightly cool squash and beets. Peel beets and cut into bite-size cubes. Place beets in a medium bowl and drizzle with another 1 tablespoon of the vinaigrette; set beets and squash aside.
