Butternut squash salad with warm cider vinaigrette

I have dinner plans with girlfriends Shannon, Emily and Natasha this evening to celebrate Natasha's birthday.  We planned a totally random, but yummy menu which includes this delicious-looking roasted butternut squash salad.  We're also making homemade pizza and Emily is making a homemade tres leches cake.  Needless to say, 6pm can't come soon enough.

This warm salad just screams winter to me.  Warm squash, a warm vinaigrette, dried cranberries....mmmmm perfect.

  1. I love salads like this...anything with squash or beets and dried or fresh fruit paired with a nutty lettuce and add some creamy cheese like goat cheese and nuts...yum! My mouth is watering!!!

    Have fun tonight and happy bday Natasha!!

  2. Sounds delicious! Butternut squash is one of my favorite vegetables to have on hand in the winter! I have never used it in a salad only soups!
