Roasted Delicata Squash Salad
I have Molly Watson to thank for the inspiration here. A while back she posted a recipe featuring a miso-harissa slathered roasted delicata squash. Quite frankly, a combination of ingredients that had never crossed my mind. Building on her idea, I decided to do a roasted squash salad of sorts. I used the pretty, scalloped-edged cross-cuts of the delicata squash, a few small potatoes, chopped kale, radishes, Marcona almonds - and her miso/harissa idea. You know it was good, right? It really was. The flavor was bold and vibrant and it was a breeze to make - no need to peel this type of squash. The vibrant yellow-rimmed slices along with pink-skinned radishes and flecks of green kale were a nice way to bring some color to the winter table.
I suspect you could do endless riffs on this depending on what you have on hand, or what is in season. I hapened to grab for the kale to get some green in the mix, and the nuts for their texture and crunch, but feel free to play around with general idea.
Thank you Molly for the inspiration, lunch is on me next week ;)…
