Butternut Squash Kale Salad

Prep: 15 minutes   |   Cook: 45 minutes   | Total Time: 1 hour   | Serves: 8 as a side or 4 as a meal


  • 1 lb butternut squash, peeled and cubed into 1” cubes
  • 4 shallots, peeled and sliced into rings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 bunches lacinato kale, ribs removed
  • ½ cup Salad Fixins


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the squash and the shallot on the baking sheet and drizzle with the 2 tablespoons olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Roast for 45 minutes until shallots are starting to caramelize and the squash is easily pierced with a fork. Remove from oven and let cool.
  3. Chop the kale into thin ribbons and place in a large bowl. Whisk together the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the kale. Massage kale with your hands for 1 minute to soften.
  4. Toss kale with the roasted vegetables and Salad Fixins and serve.
