Roasted Salmon & Butternut Squash Salad
The natural sweetness of the squash is amplified by a maple syrup-spiked dressing in this hearty salmon salad. Serve with crusty garlic bread and a glass of Beaujolais wine.
Precut butternut squash is usually sold in a 16-ounce package diced squash (3 cups of 1/2-inch pieces) or a in a 20-ounce package of large cubes (5 cups of 1- to 2-inch pieces). If you can only find the larger cubes for this recipe, cut them into 1/2-inch dice before cooking and measure out about 3 cups. Or, you can prep your own diced squash from a whole, peeled and seeded butternut squash.
All wild salmon--and now some farmed--are considered a sustainable choice for the environment. For farmed, ask for fish that's raised in land- or tank-based systems. For more information about choosing sustainable seafood, go to seafoodwatch.org.
