Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; set aside. In a large bowl combine pumpkin chunks, the 2 tablespoons olive oil, the 1/2 teaspoon salt, and the 1/4 teaspoon pepper; toss to combine. Spread in the prepared baking pan. Roast about 35 minutes or until the pumpkin is tender. Cool to room temperature.

  • Meanwhile, arrange arugula on a large serving platter or bowl. Top with cooled pumpkin, pumpkin seeds, and dried cherries.

  • For dressing, in a small bowl whisk together the 1/4 cup olive oil, the vinegar, and maple syrup. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Drizzle dressing evenly over the salad. Toss gently to mix.
