Autumn Glow Salad


1 (2-lb.) butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-in. cubes 1 tablespoon olive oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/2 cup dried green lentils 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar 2 cups arugula 1 tablespoon crumbled feta cheese 2 tablespoons All-Purpose Tahini Dressing

How to Make It

Step 1
Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2
Place squash, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a bowl; toss to combine. Spread mixture in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 400°F for 28 to 30 minutes, tossing once halfway through.

Step 3
While squash bakes, place lentils in a medium saucepan. Cover with water to 3 inches above lentils; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until lentils are tender. Drain. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin, and red wine vinegar. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 4
Arrange arugula on a plate. Top with 1 cup butternut squash (reserve remaining for Butternut-Kale Frittata), 1/2 cup cooked lentils (reserve remaining for Poached Egg Power Bowls), and cheese. Drizzle All-Purpose Tahini Dressing over top.
