Fall Recipes of roasted squash salad with greens and honey glazed acorn squash

This Roasted Squash Salad tastes so good that you may not realize how good it is for you. Acorn Squash is a powerhouse with one of the highest amounts of Vitamin A and polyphenolic compounds (which the body converts to Vitamin A). It is also a great source of Vitamin C, providing about 30% of the daily requirement in one single serving. Butternut is rich in B vitamins like folate, riboflavin, niacin and thiamin; and many minerals like iron, zinc, copper, potassium and phosphorous.

When you combine this veggie with the flavors of cinnamon and honey, you’ll be amazed that such flavor could come from a squash! In this Roasted Squash Salad recipe we are using our rich Buckwheat Honey.

Once you roast the Acorn Squash, serve it on top of your favorite salad of bitter greens, add a few pomegranate seeds, pecans and our very famous honey vinaigrette.
