Cutting the squash was a little tricky, so be careful with your weapon blade of choice. I used a large cleaver and it went pretty well.

I loved the mix of warm roasted squash with the greens in this salad. The sweet, tangy cranberry topping was the perfect accompaniment.

I served this with some Coffee Pork Chops (recipe coming Monday!) and steamed basmati rice topped with Brazilian Pepper and Onion Vinaigrette. It was an awesome meal that I look forward to having again soon. My family loved it!
